Implements dendrogram seriation. The function tries to turn the dend into hclust, on which it runs DendSer.
Also, if a distance matrix is missing, it will try to use the cophenetic distance.
DendSer.dendrogram(dend, ser_weight, ...)
An object of class dendrogram
Used by cost function to evaluate ordering. For cost=costLS, this is a vector of object weights. Otherwise is a dist or symmetric matrix. passed to DendSer. If it is missing, the cophenetic distance is used instead.
parameters passed to DendSer
Numeric vector giving an optimal dendrogram order
