Mean Lagged Association Rate

Description

Calculate lagged association rate g(tau) from Whitehead (2008)

Usage

LAR(group_by_individual, times, timejump, min_time = NULL, max_time = NULL, 
	identities = NULL, which_identities = NULL, locations = NULL, 
	which_locations = NULL, start_time = NULL, end_time = NULL, classes = NULL, 
	which_classes = NULL)

Arguments

group_by_individual

a K x N matrix of K groups (observations, gathering events, etc.) and N individuals (all individuals that are present in at least one group)

times

K vector of times defining the middle of each group/event

timejump

step length for tau

min_time

minimum/starting value of tau

max_time

maximum/ending value of tau

identities

N vector of identifiers for each individual (column) in the group by individual matrix

which_identities

vector of identities to include in the network (subset of identities)

locations

K vector of locations defining the location of each group/event

which_locations

vector of locations to include in the network (subset of locations)

start_time

element describing the starting time for inclusion in the network (useful for temporal analysis)

end_time

element describing the ending time for inclusion in the network (useful for temporal analysis)

classes

N vector of types or class of each individual (column) in the group by individual matrix (for subsetting)

which_classes

vector of class(es)/type(s) to include in the network (subset of classes)

Details

Calculate the lagged association rate for given timesteps.

Value

Returns a matrix with Log(time) in the first column and the lagged association rate in the second
