Add a Loess or a Spline Smoother

Add a loess smoother to an existing plot. The function first calculates the prediction of a loess object for a reasonable amount of points, then adds the line to the plot and inserts a polygon with the confidence intervals.

Usage
"lines"(x, col = Pal()[1], lwd = 2, lty = "solid", type = "l", n = 100, conf.level = 0.95, args.band = NULL, ...)
"lines"(x, col = Pal()[1], lwd = 2, lty = "solid", type = "l", conf.level = 0.95, args.band = NULL, ...)
"lines"(x, col = Pal()[1], lwd = 2, lty = "solid", type = "l", conf.level = 0.95, args.band = NULL, ...)
Arguments
x
the loess or smooth.spline object to be plotted.
col
linecolor of the smoother. Default is DescTools's col1.

lwd
line width of the smoother.

lty
line type of the smoother.

type
type of plot, defaults to "l".

n
number of points used for plotting the fit.

conf.level
confidence level for the confidence interval. Set this to NA, if no confidence band should be plotted. Default is 0.95.

args.band
list of arguments for the confidence band, such as color or border (see DrawBand).

...
further arguments are passed to the smoother (loess() or SmoothSpline()).

Note

Loess can result in heavy computational load if there are many points!
