## Plot method for a MackChainLadder object

### Description

`plot.MackChainLadder`

, a method to plot the output of
`MackChainLadder`

. It is designed to give a quick overview
of a `MackChainLadder`

object and to check Mack's model assumptions.

### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'MackChainLadder'
plot(x, mfrow=NULL, title=NULL,
lattice=FALSE, which=1:6, ...)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
output from |

`mfrow` |
see |

`title` |
see |

`lattice` |
logical. Default is set to |

`which` |
if a subset of the plots is required, specify a subset of the numbers 1:6. |

`...` |
optional arguments. See |

### Details

`plot.MackChainLadder`

shows six graphs, starting from the top left
with a stacked bar-chart of the latest claims position plus IBNR and
Mack's standard error by origin period; next right to it is a
plot of the forecasted development patterns for all origin periods
(numbered, starting with 1 for the oldest origin period),
and 4 residual plots. The residual plots
show the standardised residuals against fitted values, origin period,
calendar period and development period. All residual plot should show
no patterns or directions for Mack's method to be applicable.
Pattern in any direction can be the result of trends and should be
further investigated, see
Barnett and Zehnwirth. Best estimates for reserves. Proceedings
of the CAS, LXXXVI I(167), November 2000. for more details on trends.
