NAME

Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector - Module to compute with vectors of arbitrary dimension

SYNOPSIS

``` use strict;
use warnings;
use Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector;
my \$vec1=Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector->new(4);
my \$vec2=Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector->new([1,2,3,4]);
my \$vec3=Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector->new([10,20,30,40]);
my \$vec4=\$vec3-10*\$vec2;
if ((\$vec4 cmp \$vec1) == 0) {
print "\$vec4 is zero\n";
}
my \$vec5=Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector->new([8,2,2,4]);
my \$vec6=Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector->new([1,2,3,4]);
print "Test poset \$vec5 > \$vec6: ".\$vec5->geq_poset(\$vec6)."\n";
print "Test lex \$vec5 > \$vec6: ".(\$vec5 cmp \$vec6)."\n";
```

DESCRIPTION

This is a module to work with vectors. It creates vectors of arbitrary length, defines its basic arithmetic operations, its lexicographic ordering and the natural structure of poset.

APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods.

new

``` Title   : new
Usage   : my \$mu = new Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector();
Function: Creates a new Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector object
Returns : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
Args    : integer or (reference to) an array
```
If given an integer as argument, returns a Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector object with dimension the integer given and initialized to zero. If it is an anonimous array, then the vector is initialized with the values in the array and with the corresponding dimension.

display

``` Title   : display
Usage   : my \$str=\$mu->display()
Function: returns an string displaying its contents
Returns : string
Args    : none
```
This function is also overloaded to the "" operator.

``` Title   : add
Function: returns the sum of \$mu and \$mu2
Returns : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```
This function is also overloaded to the + operator.

substract

``` Title   : substract
Usage   : \$mu->substract(\$mu2)
Function: returns the difference of \$mu and \$mu2
Returns : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```
This function is also overloaded to the - operator.

scalarproduct

``` Title   : scalarproduct
Usage   : \$mu->scalarproduct(\$ct)
Function: returns the scalar product of \$ct and \$mu
Returns : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
Args    : scalar
```
This function is also overloaded to the * operator.

comparelex

``` Title   : comparelex
Usage   : \$mu1->comparelex(\$mu2)
Function: compares \$mu and \$mu2 w.r.t. the lexicographic ordering
Returns : scalar (-1 if \$mu1<\$mu2, 0 if \$mu1=\$mu2, 1 if \$mu1>\$mu2)
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```
This function is also overloaded to the <=> and cmp operator.

geq_poset

``` Title   : geq_poset
Usage   : \$mu1->geq_poset(\$mu2)
Function: compares \$mu and \$mu2 w.r.t. the natural partial ordering
Returns : boolean (1 if \$mu >= \$mu2, 0 otherwise)
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```

is_positive

``` Title   : is_positive
Usage   : \$mu->is_positive()
Function: tests if all components of \$mu are positive (or zero)
Returns : boolean
Args    : none
```

hamming

``` Title   : hamming
Usage   : \$mu1->hamming(\$mu2)
Function: returns the Hamming distance between \$mu1 and \$mu2
Returns : scalar
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```

manhattan

``` Title   : manhattan
Usage   : \$mu1->manhattan(\$mu2)
Function: returns the Manhattan distance between \$mu1 and \$mu2
Returns : scalar
Args    : Bio::PhyloNetwork::muVector
```
