=head1 NAME
Text::NSP::Measures::2D::Dice::dice - Perl module to compute Dice coefficient
for bigrams.
=head1 SYNOPSIS
=head3 Basic Usage
use Text::NSP::Measures::2D::Dice::dice;
my $npp = 60; my $n1p = 20; my $np1 = 20; my $n11 = 10;
$dice_value = calculateStatistic( n11=>$n11,
n1p=>$n1p,
np1=>$np1,
npp=>$npp);
if( ($errorCode = getErrorCode()))
{
print STDERR $errorCode." - ".getErrorMessage()."\n"";
}
else
{
print getStatisticName."value for bigram is ".$dice_value."\n"";
}
=head1 DESCRIPTION
Assume that the frequency count data associated with a bigram
is stored in a 2x2 contingency table:
word2 ~word2
word1 n11 n12 | n1p
~word1 n21 n22 | n2p
--------------
np1 np2 npp
where n11 is the number of times occur together, and
n12 is the number of times occurs with some word other than
word2, and n1p is the number of times in total that word1 occurs as
the first word in a bigram.
The Dice Coefficient is defined as :
2 * n11
---------
np1 + n1p
The Jaccard coefficient can also be computed by applying a
transformation to the dice coefficient:
$jaccard = $dice/(2-$dice)
