Step Function.

Given the vectors (x[1],...,x[n]) and (y[0],y[1],...,y[n]) (one value more!), stepfun(x, y) returns an interpolating step function, say f_n. This is the cadlag version (right = FALSE) of the stepfun function from package stats. The step function value f_n(t) equals to the constant y[k-1] for t in [x[k-1], x[k]) so that $$f_n(t) = \sum_{k=1}^{n+1} y_{k-1} {1}_{[x_{k-1}, x_{k})}(t),$$ with\(x_0=-\infty\) and \(x_{n+1}=+\infty\).

Usage
stepfun(x, y)
Arguments
x

Numeric vector giving the knots or jump locations of the step function. Must be sorted with unique values.

y

Numeric vector one longer than x, giving the heights of the function values between the cx values.
