align_curves {elasdics} R Documentation

## Align two curves measured at discrete points

### Description

Finds the optimal reparametrization of the second curve (stored in data_curve2) to the first one (stored in data_curve1) with respect to the elastic distance. Constructor function for class aligned_curves.

### Usage

align_curves(data_curve1, data_curve2, closed = FALSE, eps = 0.01)


### Arguments

 data_curve1 data.frame with observed points in each row. Each variable is one coordinate direction. If there is a variable t, it is treated as the time parametrization, not as an additional coordinate. data_curve2 same as data_curve1 closed TRUE if the curves should be treated as closed. eps convergence tolerance

### Value

an object of class aligned_curves, which is a list with entries

 data_curve1 data_curve1 with parametrization variable t data_curve2_aligned data_curve2 with initial parametrization variable t and optimal parametrization t_optim elastic_dist elastic distance between curve1 and curve2 closed TRUE if the curves should have been treated as closed.

### Examples

#open curves
data_curve1 <- data.frame(x1 = c(1, 0.5, -1, -1), x2 = c(1, -0.5, -1, 1))
data_curve2 <- data.frame(x1 = c(0.1,0.7)*sin(1:6), x2 = cos(1:6))
aligned_curves <- align_curves(data_curve1, data_curve2)
plot(aligned_curves)

#different parametrization of the first curve
data_curve1\$t <- 0:3/3
align_curves(data_curve1, data_curve2)

#closed curves
data_curve1 <- data.frame(x1 = sin(0:12/5), x2 = cos(0:12/5))
data_curve2 <- data.frame(x1 = c(1, 0.5, -1, -1), x2 = c(1, -0.5, -1, 1))
aligned_curves_closed <- align_curves(data_curve1, data_curve2, closed = TRUE)
plot(aligned_curves_closed, asp = 1)
