Smoothing Spline with User-Specified Rigidity and Frequency Cutoff

Applies a smoothing spline to y with rigidity determined by two parameters: frequency response f at a wavelength of nyrs years.

Keywords
smooth
Usage
ffcsaps(y, x = seq_along(y), nyrs = length(y)/2, f = 0.5)
Arguments
y

a numeric vector, typically a tree-ring series.

x

a numeric vector with the same length as y, typically giving the years of y.

nyrs

a number greater than 1, affecting the rigidity of the spline. When f is kept constant, a larger nyrs produces a more rigid spline. Defaults to length(y)/2.

f

a number between 0 and 1 giving the frequency response at a wavelength of nyrs years. When nyrs is kept constant, a smaller f produces a more rigid spline: At one extreme, f = 0 causes the function to return the least-squares straight line fit to the data. At the other extreme, f = 1 results in the natural spline, i.e. the function outputs y. The default value is 0.5.

Details

This applies a smoothing spline similar to the spline applied in most dendrochronological software. See references for more information. See ‘Examples’ for a pointer to a PDF document including mathematical details about the function.

Value

A filtered vector.
