rSRD: Sum of Ranking Differences Statistical Test

We provide an implementation for Sum of Ranking Differences (SRD), a novel statistical test introduced by Héberger (2010) <doi:10.1016/j.trac.2009.09.009>. The test allows the comparison of different solutions through a reference by first performing a rank transformation on the input, then calculating and comparing the distances between the solutions and the reference - the latter is measured in the L1 norm. The reference can be an external benchmark (e.g. an established gold standard) or can be aggregated from the data. The calculated distances, called SRD scores, are validated in two ways, see Héberger and Kollár-Hunek (2011) <doi:10.1002/cem.1320>. A randomization test (also called permutation test) compares the SRD scores of the solutions to the SRD scores of randomly generated rankings. The second validation option is cross-validation that checks whether the rankings generated from the solutions come from the same distribution or not. For a detailed analysis about the cross-validation process see Sziklai, Baranyi and Héberger (2021) <doi:10.48550/arXiv.2105.11939>. The package offers a wide array of features related to SRD including the computation of the SRD scores, validation options, input preprocessing and plotting tools.
