Creates a Dissimilarity object that bears the name R. The dissimilarities in this object were chosen to be a monotone transformation of the distances between the 32 two-dimensional points that make up the capital letter R.
All 32 · (32-1)/2 interpoint distances were subjected to the transformation:
|dissimilarityij = distanceij2 + 5 + noiseRange · u,|
where u is a uniform random variable between 0 and 1.
This example was chosen from Green, Carmone & Smith (1989).
