The Dominator of Array

The dominator of array A is the value that occurs in more than half of the elements of A. It is a zero-indexed based array consisting of N integers (A [] with N length). To find the index array of the dominator from a A [], we can use a helpful function from Seq module call 'Seq.groupBy' to mitigate the implementation of a solution.

  /// A dominator occurs in more than half of an array's length
  let dominator (arr: int []) = 
    // Define an index seq
    let seqIndex  = Seq.init (arr.Length) id

  // Testing cases
  let testArray1 = [|7;4;8;2;4;-1;4;4;4;4;6;4|]

  let testArray3 = [|1;2;3;4|]

  (*Although sometimes returning an Option type would be desirable*)
  // [|1; 4; 6; 7; 8; 9; 11|]
  dominator testArray1
  // [|1; 2; 5; 8; 9; 10; 12; 13; 14|]

  // [||]
