Internal information

The function returns internal information about the simulation of a random field and the calculation of covariance functions

GetRegisterInfo(register, = FALSE, max.elements=10^6,
                meth=NULL, modelname=NULL)
GetModelInfo(register, modelreg, level=3, gatter=FALSE)
GetModel(register, modelreg, modus=0)

  • 0 : register for the functionsCovariance,CovarianceFct, ect
  • 1 : register for simulation
  • 2 : register for covariance calculation within Kriging
logical. If FALSE and the register has non-active flag (because of an error or it is deleted) then a list is returned that contains only the element active=FALSE. Otherwise, a more complete list is returned -- only fo

boolean; only for very advanced interests.

GetRegisterInfo(register, is useful for debugging and specialists' need to control the algorithm, see the examples in RFparameters and GaussRF. If RFparameters()$Storage=FALSE then values of the internal registers are not kept if GaussRF or DoSimulateRF has been called. Hence GetRegisterInfo cannot provide any information.

GetModelInfo returns the complete information on the internal model structure. It allows for register=-1 returning the model structure for the last use of CovarianceFct, sophisticated models or Variogram or similar commands. register=-2 is for internal use only.

GetModel returns only the parts of the internal model structure that have been defined by the user. The modus is ignored if PracticalRange=FALSE in RFparameters. In case PracticalRange=TRUE the modus has the following effects

  1. 0
{the model is returned without the explicite scale transformation} 1{the model is returned the way it is stored, including the scale transformation} 2{the scale transformation of the the practical range is included, but a simplified model will be returned }


  • List of internal information is returned.


Put Storing=TRUE, see RFparameters if you like to have more internal information in case of an expected failure of an initialisation of a random field simulation.
