plot_producer {agop} R Documentation

## Draws a Graphical Representation of a Numeric Vector

### Description

Draws a step function that represents a numeric vector with elements in [a,\infty].

### Usage

plot_producer(
x,
type = c("left.continuous", "right.continuous", "curve"),
extend = FALSE,
pch = 1,
col = 1,
lty = 1,
lwd = 1,
cex = 1,
col.steps = col,
lty.steps = 2,
lwd.steps = 1,
xlab = "",
ylab = "",
main = "",
xmarg = 10,
xlim = c(0, length(x) * 1.2),
ylim = c(a, max(x)),
a = 0,
...
)


### Arguments

 x non-negative numeric vector type character; 'left.continuous' (the default) or 'right.continuous' for step functions and 'curve' for a continuous step curve extend logical; should the plot be extended infinitely to the right? Defaults to FALSE add logical; indicates whether to start a new plot, FALSE by default pch, col, lty, lwd, cex, xmarg graphical parameters col.steps, lty.steps, lwd.steps graphical parameters, used only for type of 'left.continuous' and 'right.continuous' only ylim, xlim, xlab, ylab, main, ... additional graphical parameters, see plot.default a single numeric value

### Details

In agop, a vector x=(x_1,\dots,x_n) can be represented by a step function defined for 0\le y<n and given by:

\pi(y)=x_{(n-\lfloor y+1\rfloor+1)}

(for type == 'right.continuous') or for 0< y\le n

\pi(y)=x_{(n-\lfloor y\rfloor+1)}

(for type == 'left.continuous', the default) or by a curve interpolating the points (0, x_{(n)}), (1, x_{(n)}), (1, x_{(n-1)}), (2, x_{(n-1)}), ..., (n, x_{(1)}). Here, x_{(i)} denotes the i-th smallest value in x.

In bibliometrics, a step function of one of the two above-presented types is called a citation function.

For historical reasons, this function is also available via its alias, plot.citfun [but its usage is deprecated].

### Value

nothing interesting

### Examples

john_s <- c(11,5,4,4,3,2,2,2,2,2,1,1,1,0,0,0,0)
plot_producer(john_s, main="Smith, John", col="red")
