asymmetryCurve {DepthProc} R Documentation

## Asymmetry curve based on depths

### Description

Produces an asymmetry curve estimated from given data.

### Usage

asymmetryCurve(
x,
y = NULL,
alpha = seq(0, 1, 0.01),
movingmedian = FALSE,
name = "X",
name_y = "Y",
depth_params = list(method = "Projection")
)


### Arguments

 x The data as a matrix or data frame. If it is a matrix or data frame, then each row is viewed as one multivariate observation. y Additional matrix of multivariate data. alpha An ordered vector containing indices of central regins used for asymmetry curve calculation. movingmedian Logical. For default FALSE only one depth median is used to compute asymmetry norm. If TRUE — for every central area, a new depth median will be used — this approach needs much more time. name Name of set X — used in plot legend name_y Name of set Y — used in plot legend depth_params list of parameters for function depth (method, threads, ndir, la, lb, pdim, mean, cov, exact). method Character string which determines the depth function used. The method can be "Projection" (the default), "Mahalanobis", "Euclidean", "Tukey" or "LP". For details see depth.

### Details

For sample depth function D({x}, {{{Z}} ^ {n}}) , {x} \in {{{R}} ^ {d}} , d ≥ 2 , {Z} ^ {n} = \{{{{z}}_{1}}, ..., {{{z}}_{n}}\} \subset {{{R}} ^ {d}} , {{D}_{α}}({{{Z}} ^ {n}}) denoting α — central region, we can define the asymmetry curve AC(α) = ≤ft(α, ≤ft\| {{c} ^ {-1}}(\{{\bar{z}} - med|{{D}_{α}}({{{Z}} ^ {n}})\}) \right\|\right) \subset {{{R}} ^ {2}} , for α \in [0, 1] being nonparametric scale and asymmetry functional correspondingly, where c — denotes constant, {\bar{z}} — denotes mean vector, denotes multivariate median induced by depth function and vol — denotes a volume.

Asymmetry curve takes uses function convhulln from package geometry for computing a volume of convex hull containing central region.

### Examples


# EXAMPLE 1
library(sn)
xi <- c(0, 0)
alpha <- c(2, -5)
Omega <- diag(2) * 5

n <- 500
X <- mvrnorm(n, xi, Omega) # normal distribution
Y <- rmst(n, xi, Omega, alpha, nu = 1)
asymmetryCurve(X, Y, name = "NORM", name_y = "S_T(2, -5, 10)")

# EXAMPLE 2
data(under5.mort)
data(inf.mort)
data(maesles.imm)
data1990 <- cbind(under5.mort[, 1], inf.mort[, 1], maesles.imm[, 1])
data2011 <- cbind(under5.mort[, 22], inf.mort[, 22], maesles.imm[, 22])
as1990 <- asymmetryCurve(data1990, name = "scale curve 1990")
as2011 <- asymmetryCurve(data2011, name = "scale curve 2011")
