```

x

a numeric vector.

y

a numeric vector.

pch

plotting 'character'. This can either be a single character or an integer code for one of a set of graphics symbols. (see '?pch', to be passed to plot).

cexplot

a numerical value giving the amount by which the points should be magnified relative to the default.

nrcol

a non-negative integer specifying the number of colors to be used (defaults to 100, if not specified).

grid

an integer specifying the size of the grid used for the KDE.

colpal

a character vector containing R built-in color names or a name of a `LSD`

colorpalette as a character string (see disco() or `disco`

) (defaults to "heat", if not specified).

simulate

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), a converted colorpalette is used to simulate dichromat vision according to http://www.daltonize.org (see `daltonize`

).

daltonize

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), a converted colorpalette is used to enhance dichromat vision according to http://www.daltonize.org (see `daltonize`

).

cvd

character string implying the type of color vision deficiency ("p" for protanope, "d" for deuteranope or "t" for tritanope).

alpha

alpha value: a two-digit integer between 01 and 99 for color opacity, i.e. appearance of partial or full transparency (usage omitted by default).

rev

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), a reversed colorpalette is used.

xlim

x limits, standard graphics parameter.

ylim

y limits, standard graphics parameter.

xlab

x labels, standard graphics parameter.

ylab

y labels, standard graphics parameter.

main

title(s) of the plot, standard graphics parameter.

cor

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), the correlation is added to the title.

method

a character specifying the correlation method to use ('pearson' (default), 'kendall' or 'spearman').

only

a character string which contains 'x' if the density should only be computed for the x axis, 'y' for the y axis (defaults to 'none' for the two-dimensional case).

add.contour

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), the contour lines are added to the plot.

nlevels

an integer giving the number of levels of the contour lines.

color.contour

R build-in color for the contour lines.

greyscale

logical: if `TRUE`

(`FALSE`

by default), the used colorpalette is converted to greyscales.

log

a character string which contains "x" if the x axis is to be logarithmic, "y" if the y axis is to be logarithmic and "xy" or "yx" if both axes are to be logarithmic.

...

additional parameters to be passed to points and plot.
