euclidean {DFA} R Documentation

euclidean method for detection of crossover points

Description

Applies the euclidean method for detection of crossover points on the log-log curve.

Usage

euclidean(x,y,npoint)


Arguments

 x Vector of the decimal logarithm of the boxes sizes. y Vector of the decimal logarithm of the DFA calculated in each boxe. npoint Number of crossover points calculated on the log-log curve.

Value

 position Position of the crossover point identified by the euclidean method. sugestion_before Sugestion for the position of the second crossover point identified by the euclidean method and calculated in the area before the first crossover point. sugestion_after Sugestion for the position of the second crossover point identified by the euclidean method and calculated in the area after the first crossover point.
