Contour plot of the Kent distribution in S^2 {Compositional}R Documentation

Contour plot of the Kent distribution in S^2

Description

Contour plot of the Kent distribution in S^2.

Usage

kent.contour(G, param, n = 100, x = NULL, cont.line = FALSE)

Arguments

G

A 3 x 3 matrix whose first column is the mean direction. The second and third columns are the major and minor axes respectively.

param

A vector with the concentration kappa and ovalness β parameters (the ψ parameter has been absorbed inside the matrix G).

n

The number of grid points to consider over which the density is calculated.

x

This is either NULL (no data) or contains a 3 column matrix with compositional data.

cont.line

Do you want the contour lines to appear? If yes, set this TRUE.

Details

The user can plot only the contour lines of a Dirichlet with a given vector of parameters, or can also add the relevant data should they wish to.

Value

A ternary diagram with the points and the Dirichlet contour lines.
