Eulerian tour algorithms for data visualization and the PairViz package


PairViz is an R package that produces orderings of statistical objects for visualization purposes. We abstract the ordering problem to one of constructing edge-traversals of (possibly weighted) graphs. PairViz implements various edge traversal algorithms which are based on Eulerian tours and Hamiltonian decompositions.We describe these algorithms, their PairViz implementation and discuss their properties and performance. We illustrate their application to two visualization problems, that of assessing rater agreement, and model comparison in regression.
