Estimation of the Kmm function

Description

Estimates of the Kmm function

Usage

Kmmhat(X, r = NULL, ReferenceType = "", CheckArguments = TRUE)

Arguments

X

A weighted, marked, planar point pattern (wmppp.object).

r

A vector of distances. If NULL, a sensible default value is chosen (512 intervals, from 0 to half the diameter of the window) following spatstat.

ReferenceType

One of the point types. Others are ignored. Default is all point types.

CheckArguments

Logical; if TRUE, the function arguments are verified. Should be set to FALSE to save time in simulations for example, when the arguments have been checked elsewhere.

Details

The Kmm function is used to test the independence of marks.

Value

An object of class fv, see fv.object, which can be plotted directly using plot.fv.

Note

The function is computed using markcorrint in spatstat.

Examples

data(paracou16)
# Keep only 50% of points to run this example
X <- as.wmppp(rthin(paracou16, 0.5))
autoplot(X, 
  labelSize = expression("Basal area (" ~cm^2~ ")"), 
  labelColor = "Species")

# Calculate Kmm
r <- seq(0, 30, 2)
(Paracou <- Kmmhat(X, r))

# Plot
autoplot(Paracou, ./(pi*r^2) ~ r)
