5 QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN ECONOMICS Vol. XII, No., 20, pp. 3 AN APPLICATION OF RADAR CHARTS TO GEOMETRICAL MEASURES OF STRUCTURES OF CONFORMABILITY Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk Department of Econometrcs and Statstcs, Warsaw Unversty of Lve Scences SGGW emals: Wesław Szczesny Department of Informatcs, Warsaw Unversty of Lve Scences SGGW emal: Abstract: In the followng work we presented a method of usng radar charts to calculate measures of conformablty of two objects accordng to formulas gven by, among others, Dce, Jaccard, Tanmoto and Tversky. Ths method ncorporates another one presented by the authors of ths study [Bnderman, Borkowsk, Szczesny 200]. Presented methods can be also utlzed to defne smlartes between gven objects, as well as to order and group objects. Measures descrbed n ths work satsfy the condton of stablty as they do not depend on the order of studed features. Key words: radar method, radar measure of conformablty, Dce s, Jaccard s measure of smlarty, synthetc measures, classfcaton, cluster analyss. CONSTRUCTION OF RADAR MEASURES OF CONFORMABILITY In prevous works authors used methods that have a smple nterpretaton n the form of a radar chart to order, classfy and measure smlarty of objects [Bnderman, Borkowsk, Szczesny 2008, 2009, 2009a, 200, 200a, b, c, d, Bnderman, Szczesny 2009, 20, Bnderman 2009, 2009a]. Those methods do not depend on the way the features of a gven object are ordered. In the followng work authors attempted to utlze those methods n other, wdely known means of measurng smlarty between two objects. Comparng structures of objects s chosen here as an example. Coeffcents of Jaccard, Dce and Tanmoto, Tversky ndex and cosne smlarty are all exemplary geometrcal measures of smlarty.
6 2 Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk, Wesław Szczesny The methods presented here may seem numercally complcated but n the age of computers ths problem s of lttle sgnfcance. Numerous studes conducted n many dfferent felds of scence: economcs, statstcs, computer scence, chemstry, bology, ecology, psychology, culture and toursm have proven the usefulness of those methods [Bnderman 2009a, Bnderman, Borkowsk, Szczesny 200b, c, Cok, Kowalczyk, Pleszczyńska, Szczesny 995, Deza E., Deza M.M. 2006, Duda, Hart, Stork 2000, Gordon 999, Hubalek 982, Kukuła 2000, 200, Legendre P., Legendre L. 998, Monev 2004, Szczesny 2002, Tan, Stenbach, Kumar 2006, Warrens 2008]. Let Q and P be two objects that are descrbed by a set of n (n>2) features. n Assume that objects Q and P are descrbed by two vectors x, y R +, where: x = ( x, x2,..., xn), y = ( y, y2,..., yn); x, y 0; = 2,,..., n and n n x =, y =. = = In order to graphcally represent the methods we nscrbe a regular ngon nto a unt crcle (wth a radus of ) wth a centre n the orgn of a polar coordnate system 0uv and we wll connect the vertces of ths ngon wth the orgn of the coordnate system. Thus, one constructs lne segments of length, we wll denote, n sequence, O,O2,...,0n, startng, for defntveness, wth the lne segment coverng w axs. Assume that at least two coordnates of each of the vectors x and y are nonzero. Because features of objects x and y take on values from an nterval <0,>, that s 0 x 0 x, 0 y 0 y, =,2,...n, where 0:=(0,0,...,0), :=(,,...,), we can represent the values of those features as a radar chart. To do so, let x (y ) denote those ponts on the 0 axs that came nto beng by ntersectng the 0 axs wth a crcle wth the centre at the orgn of the coordnate system and radus of x (y ), =,2,...,n. By connectng the ponts: x wth x 2, x 2 wth x 3,..., x n wth x (y wth y 2, y 2 wth y 3,..., y n wth y ) we get ngons S Q and S P, where ts areas S Q and S P, are gven by formulas: n n 2π 2π SQ = Sx = : n 2xx sn = sn, gdze, + n 2 n xx x = + + x = = () n n 2π 2π SP = Sy = sn sn, gdze :. 2yy = n 2 yy y = y + n + n+ = = The formula for the area of the ntersecton of those ngons, whch we wll denote by Sx y : = Sx Sy has a more complcated form. Its form and detaled determnaton can be found n [Bnderman, Borkowsk, Szczesny 200]. Usng those formulae we can denote the area of the unon of ngons S x and S y as

Fgure presents two graphcal llustratons of vectors x=(0,2, 0,2, 0,3, 0,5, 0,, 0,05) and y =(0,5, 0,5, 0,2, 0,25, 0,5, 0,) that descrbe two exemplary demographcal structures (for age ranges: 04, 524, 2549, 5064, 6579, >80), whle Fg. A and B dffer only by the order of axes (meanng the permutaton of the coordnates). Fg.. Radar charts for vectors x and y, whch coordnates present two exemplary demographcal structures, by dfferent orderng of axes. > ,3 0,25 0,2 0,5 0, 0, > B 04 0,3 0,25 0,2 0,5 0, 0, A Source: own work From the fgure t s clear that areas of ngons Sx, S y and ther unons on fgures A and B dffer n sze. They are: 0,076; 0,074; 0,05 and 0,075; 0,069; 0,047, respectvely. In works [Bnderman Borkowsk, Szczesny 2008, 200] authors proposed a measure of conformablty of objects that uses a geometrcal nterpretaton n the form of radar charts and s defned as follows: R xy = S S x y σ xy S S x y ω xy for n= 3 for n 4, () 3
8 4 Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk, Wesław Szczesny where mn( S gdy > 0 gdy > 0 x, S y ) S x S y max( S x, S y ) S x S y xy gdy Sx Sy= 0 gdy Sx Sy= 0 σ : =, ω : = xy. Note that such a measure of conformablty (smlarty) has the property of: 0 μ x.y and depends on the orderng of features [cf. Bnderman Borkowsk, Szczesny 2008]. To defne a measure of conformablty of objects that does not depend on the orderng of features, let us denote by π j a jth permutaton of numbers,2,,n. It s known that the number of all such permutatons s equal to n! [Mostowsk, Stark 977]. Each permutaton of coordnates of vectors x and y corresponds to one permutaton π j. Let vectors x j, y j denote the jth permutaton of coordnates of vectors x and y, respectvely, assumng that x :=x, y :=y. For example, f n=3, x=(x,x 2,x 3 ), y=(y,y 2,y 3 ) and π =(,2,3), π 2 =(,3,2), π 3 =(2,,3), π 4 =(2,3,), π 5 =(3,,2), π 6 =(3,2,) then: x =(x,x 2,x 3 ), y =(y,y 2,y 3 ), x 2 =(x,x 3,x 2 ), y 2 =(y,y 3,y 2 ) x 3 =(x 2,x,x 3 ), y 3 =(y 2,y,y 3 ), x 4 =(x 2,x 3,x ), y 4 =(y 2,y 3,y ), x 5 =(x 3,x,x 2 ), y 5 =(y 3,y,y 2 ), x 6 =(x 3,x 2,x ), y 6 =(y 3,y 2,y ). A result from our earler works s that a coeffcent of conformablty of structures corresponds to each jth permutaton x j, y j of coordnates of vectors x and y j RQP, = R xy, ( 4) j j where naturally RQP, = R xy. Therefore, we can assume that the followng desgnatons of three dfferent measures of conformablty of consdered objects Q and P. Naturally, those measures are nvarant under the orderng of coordnates for vectors x and y. M M j QP, = xy = QP, j n! m m j QP, = xy = QP, j n! n! s s j QP, = xy = QP,. n! j= R R max R, R R mn R, () 5 R R R
9 An applcaton of radar charts 5 Other wellknown n lterature technques that use geometrcal nterpretatons, such as radar charts, may be used to compare two structures x = ( x, x2,..., xn), y = ( y, y2,..., y n). Most well known among them are: cosne smlarty [Deza, Deza 2006] Sx Sy for S S > 0 c x y S S, xy x y (6) = 0 for Sx Sy = 0 Jaccard coeffcent [Jaccard 90, 902, 908] Sx Sy for S S 0 J x y > xy = Sx Sy, 0 for Sx Sy = 0 (7) Dce s coeffcent [Dce 945] 2Sx Sy for Sx Sy > 0 D xy = Sx + Sy, (8) 0 for Sx Sy = 0 Tanmoto coeffcent [Tanmoto 957, 959] Sx Sy for Sx Sy > 0 T xy = Sx + Sy Sx S y, (9) 0 for Sx Sy = 0
10 6 Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk, Wesław Szczesny Tversky ndex [Tversky 957] S S x y for Sx Sy > 0 xy Sx Sy + α S x \Sy + β S y \Sx, T = αβ 0. (0) 0 for Sx Sy = 0 Let us note that f n the above formula the coeffcents fulfll α=β= then we get Tanmoto s formula and f α=β= then we get Dce s formula. Here and n 2 the sequel we shall assume that α=β=. 4 Note that the defned above measures of smlarty, take a value between [0, ], are dependent on the orderng of features n case once represents the object by a radar chart. Another smple way of vsualzng the structure x = ( x, x2,..., xn ) s a bar graph, n whch each coordnate s represented as a rectangle of wdth and heght x (for =,,n). The area of such graph s equal to and one of the most popular ndcators of smlarty of two structures x = ( x, x2,..., xn ) and y = ( y, y2,..., y n ) s defned as [Malna 2004]: n Wxy : = mn( x, y), () = It s clear that ts value s ndependent of the orderng of features and, n the case of such graphcal representaton of structure, takes a value dentcal to the values of coeffcents defned n (6) and (8). In every stuaton when the ndcator of smlarty of two structures that uses a graphcal nterpretaton s not nvarant under the permutaton of coordnates, we may modfy ts defnton, n a way shown above (see formula (5)). Thus, to defne a measure of conformablty that would be ndependent of the orderng of features, let us denote by p j the jth permutaton of numbers,2,,n. Naturally, each permutaton of coordnates of vectors x and y corresponds to one permutaton p j. Let vectors x j, y j denote jth permutaton of coordnates of vectors x and y, respectvely. Assume that x =x, y =y, for each jth permutaton x j, y j of coordnates of vectors x and y corresponds a coeffcent of conformablty of structures j c, = cxy, ( 2) j j QP
11 An applcaton of radar charts 7 where naturally c QP, = c xy, and the cosne smlarty c xy s defned as n formula (6). Wth regard to the above, let us assume the followng defntons of three dfferent measures of conformablty for objects Q and P M M j QP, = x,y = QP, j n! m m j QP, = x,y = QP, j n! n! s s j QP, = x,y = QP, n! j= c c max c, c c mn c, ( 3) c c c. In a smlar manner we can defne other coeffcents M m s M m s M m s M m s J xy,j xy,j xy;d xy,d xy, D xy ; Txy, Txy, T xy;t xy,txytxy. In order to demonstrate the presented above method of comparng structures, let us consder a smple example. Example. Let Q= x=,, 0, R= y =,,. Let us assume the followng denotatons: x: = x4 : = x, x2 : = x5: =,0,, x3: = x6 : = 0,,, y: = y2 : = y3: = y4 : = y5: = y6 = y. Thus we have: 2π 3 2π 3 Sx = sn =, S 3 sn, y = = π Sx S sn,, y = = S x S y = Rxy = / =, dla =,2,...,
12 8 Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk, Wesław Szczesny M m s 2 So Rx,y = Rx,y = Rx,y = = ~, M s m, where coeffcents RQP,, RQP,, R QP, are defned as n formulae (5). It can be easly verfed that coeffcents of conformablty of structures: cosne (formula (3)), Jaccard, Dce s are equal to: M m s M m s M m s c = c = c = 0, 385; J = J = J = 0, 236; D = D = D = 0, 38. x,y x,y x,y x,y x,y x,y x,y x,y x,y Note that M M M c = 0620, ; J = 0486, ; D = 067,. x,y x,y x,y It s also noteworthy that n ths case the coeffcent of conformablty of structures 2 (defned by formula ()) s W xy = =. The value of the coeffcent defne by formula (7) or (9) that uses an nterpretaton of the structure as a bar graph s equal to 0,5 =0,6(6)/,3(3). The above example shows that measures of smlarty of two objects calculated by dfferent methods (e.g. a method that ncludes the manner of the graphcal representaton of the structure or a method of normalzng, whch, when appled, causes the measure of the area of the unon of faces to take a value between [0, ]), can be sgnfcantly dfferent. A sngle measure of smlarty of objects can be far from optmal n the understandng of a gven expert. Furthermore, experts can dsagree on the meanngs of ndvdual measures. Thus t s safer to use, n the analyss of structures, a measure that s, for example, an average of several dfferent measures of smlarty [see: Breman 994]. EMPIRICAL RESULTS In order to verfy the approach descrbed n the prevous secton, we present an evaluaton of the sze of changes n demographcal structures of European countres between the years 999 and 2000, usng the dscussed above coeffcents. The followng Tables and 2 contan values of ndcators evaluatng the change of demographcal structures for 27 countres between years 999 and 200; wth an ndcaton what poston they occuped n the rankng of values of ndvdual measures as well as two parttons of countres nto 4 groups (columns C and C2). The partton s made based on the values of ndcator M (arthmetc mean of values of ndcators R, C, J, D and T) and ndcator W, whle the thresholds were defned as: Ad, A, A+d, where A denotes an average and d standard devaton.

They dffer only by the method used to normalze that area, so that the value of the ndcator of smlarty s between [0, ]. That s why all the ndcators, wth the excepton of ndcator R, they gve the same orderng of European countres, accordng to the smlarty of structures for the years 999 and 200. Small dfferences are vsble only n the case of ndcator R. The results do not change f we modfy the ndcator so that ts value s ndependent of the orderng of coordnates of the vector representng the structure (see. Table 2). On the other hand, dfferences between the orderng by the value of ndcator W (based on a dfferent vsualzaton of structures that the rest), and the
14 0 Zbgnew Bnderman, Bolesław Borkowsk, Wesław Szczesny orderng by the value of ndcator M are notceable. Even more so n the last two columns of Table 2, whch represent the partton of countres nto 4 groups, accordng to the smlarty of structures for years 999 and 200.

15 An applcaton of radar charts SUMMARY Means for defnng the values of ndcators of smlarty that use geometrcal nterpretatons n the form of a value of an area and are descrbed n ths work can also be used n other geometrcal ways of studyng the smlarty of structures as well as objects. These ways are an example of applyng geometrcal methods that are ntroduced by the authors usng radar charts [Bnderman, Borkowsk, Szczesny 2008, 200]. The emprcal analyss shows that when structures are not subject to large changes then the values of ndvdual ndcators, based on the same geometrcal nterpretaton, they order the structures smlarly. However, f we change the way of vsualzng the smlarty (the geometrcal nterpretaton) then we see changes n orderng. That s the reason why t s advsable to use several dfferent ndcators that use dfferent means of vsualzaton. Furthermore, t s worth notng that by usng geometrcal nterpretaton as a bass to construct an ndcator of smlarty we can obtan an ndcator that s very senstve to changes n the orderng of coordnates of a vector that numercally represents a gven structure. In practce there may be stuatons n whch a researcher desres such qualty n an ndcator so t may vsbly hghlght even small dfferences between structures, but for a gven orderng of ther components. However, one needs to remember that methods of constructng ndcators of smlarty that use a geometrcal nterpretaton are often appled manly because of the ease of vsualzaton of multdmensonal data. Then an unseasoned researcher may msuse them. It must be hghlghted that ndcators based solely on those llustratons do not satsfy often posed n the lterature on ths subject the basc requrement of stablty of the used method [see Jackson 970], that means the ndependence of the orderng of features. Technques presented by the authors show how a defnton of an ndcator must be modfed (the method of measurement) to remove ths flaw. Technques that were ponted out may seem numercally complex; nevertheless, n the age of computers that problem became nsgnfcant. On the other hand, ths smple and stable emprcal example shows that by applyng modfcatons, that s makng the measurement of smlarty ndependent of the orderng of ndvdual components of the structure, we obtan dfferent results (see Tables and 2, e.g., Span). The measurement of smlarty of structures based on geometrcal nterpretaton becomes even more complcated when a researcher s nterested n changes that occurred n a gven structures durng the whole studed perod and not only between the begnnng and the end of the sample. Further works on ths subject can be found n the work Bnderman and Szczesny 20.

19 QUANTITATIVE METHODS IN ECONOMICS Vol. XII, No., 20, pp SOME REMARKS ON APLICATIONS OF ALGEBRAIC ANALYSIS TO ECONOMICS Zbgnew Bnderman, Marek Werzbck Department of Econometrcs and Statstcs Warsaw Unversty of Lfe Scences SGGW emals: Abstract: In ths paper, the author contnues the nvestgatons started n hs earler work [Bnderman 2009]. Here, problems of lnear equaton Dx=y wth the dfference operator D are studed. The work s an ntroducton to applcatons of the theory of rght nvertble operators to economcs. As an example, quotatons of KGHM on Warsaw Stock Exchange are consdered. Key words: algebrac analyss, rght nvertble operator, dfference operator, quotatons of Stock Exchange, Jacoban matrx In memory of Professor Krystyna Twardowska INTRODUCTION In mathematcs the term Algebrac Analyss s used n two completely dfferent senses [cf. Przeworska  Rolewcz 2000]. Here, meanng of Algebrac Analyss s closely connected wth theory of rght nvertble operators [cf. Przeworska  Rolewcz 988]. In the earler work of the author [Bnderman 2009] a new defnton of elastcty operators n algebras wth rght nvertble operators was proposed. The defnton uses logarthmc mappngs of algebrac analyss [cf. PrzeworskaRolewcz 998]. The obtaned results were appled to economcs n order to fnd a functon f elastcty of ths functon s gven. Here, possbltes of applcatons of algebrac analyss to economcs, on the smple example of the dfference operator D and the lnear equaton Dx=y are presented. The paper s an ntroducton n ths range.
20 6 Zbgnew Bnderman, Marek Werzbck Throughout ths work wll denote ether the real feld,, or the complex feld, Let X and Y be a lnear space over. The set of all lnear operators domans contaned n X and ranges contaned n Y wll be denoted by L(X,Y). We shall wrte: L0(X,Y): = { A L(X,Y):domA = X }, L(X): = L(X,X), L0(X) : = L0(X, X), ker A :{ x dom A :Ax = 0} for A L(X, Y). Followng D. Przeworska  Rolewcz [c.f. Przeworska  Rolewcz 988], an operator D L(X) s sad to be rght nvertble f there s an operator R L L 0 (X) such that RX dom D and DR=I. The operator R s called a rght nverse of D. We shall consder n L(X) the followng sets: the set R(X) of all rght nvertble operators belongng to L(X) ; the set R D := { R L 0 (X) : DRx = x for all x X }; the set F D := { F L 0 (X) : F 2 = F, FX = ker D and R R D : FR=0} of all ntal operators for a D R(X). We note, f D R(X), R R D and ker D {0 }, then the operator D s rght nvertble, but not nvertble. We have DRx= x for all x X and x dom D: RDx x. Here, the nvertblty of an operator A L (X) means that the equaton Ax=y has the unque soluton for every y X. If D R(X) and 0 z ker D and x s a soluton of the equaton DX=y then the element x +z s also the soluton of ths equaton. If F s an ntal operator for D correspondng to R then Fx =x RDx=(IRD)x for x dom D and Fz=z for z ker D. () We note, a dfferent approach to the defnton of rght nvertble lnear operators s presented n the work [Bnderman 2009]. In the sequel we shall assume that D R(X), R R D, F F D s an ntal operator for D correspondng to R and dm ker D>0,.e. D s rght nvertble but not nvertble. We observe, that f we know one rght nverse of D then the sets [c.f. Przeworska  Rolewcz 988] R D = {R + FA: A L 0 (X)}; (2) F D = {F(IAD): A L 0 (X)}. (3) We shall need the two followng theorems [c.f. Przeworska  Rolewcz 988]. Theorem. The general soluton of the equaton s gven by the formula Dx = y, y X, (4)
