Distance Based Ranking Models

Implements distance based probability models for ranking data. The supported distance metrics include Kendall distance, Spearman distance, Footrule distance, Hamming distance, , Weighted-tau distance and Weighted Kendall distance. Phi-component model and mixture models are also supported.

R package rankdist

Implements distance based probability models for ranking data. The supported models include Mallow's Phi-model (Kendall distance), Weighted Kendall distance model and Phi-Component model. Mixture models are also supported.


Fit a single-cluster Mallow's Phi-model to APA election data.

testctrl <- new("RankControlKendall")
testinit <- new("RankInit",param.init=list(1),modal_ranking.init=list(c(2,3,4,1,5)),clu=1L)
ken_c1 <- RankDistanceModel(apa_obj,testinit,testctrl)

Fit a three-cluster Weighted Kendall distance model to APA election data.

testinit <- new("RankInit",param.init=list(rep(0.1,4),rep(0.1,4),rep(0.1,4)),modal_ranking.init=list(c(3,4,5,1,2),c(2,3,1,5,4),c(4,2,5,3,1)),clu=3L,p.init=rep(1,3)/3)
testctrl <- new("RankControlWeightedKendall") ```
