mergeSubpops {ConnMatTools} | R Documentation |
This function tries to merge random subopoulations, checking if the result is a better soluton to the minimization problem.
mergeSubpops(subpops.lst, conn.mat, beta)
subpops.lst |
A list whose elements are vectors of indices for each subpopulation. See |
conn.mat |
A square connectivity matrix. This matrix has typically been normalized and made symmetric prior to using this function. |
beta |
Controls degree of splitting of connectivity matrix, with larger values generating more subpopulations. |
List of the same format as subpops.lst, but with potentially fewer subpopulations.
