ANOVA for Fitted Point Process Models

Performs analysis of deviance for two or more fitted point process models.

Keywords
models, methods, spatial
Usage
## S3 method for class 'ppm':
anova(object, \dots, test=NULL, override=FALSE)
Arguments
object
A fitted point process model (object of class "ppm").
...
One or more fitted point process models.
test
Character string, partially matching one of "Chisq", "F" or "Cp".
override
Logical flag indicating whether to proceed even when there is no statistical theory to support the calculation.
Details

This is a method for anova for fitted point process models (objects of class "ppm", usually generated by the model-fitting function ppm).

If the fitted models are all Poisson point processes, then this function performs an Analysis of Deviance of the fitted models. The output shows the deviance differences (i.e. 2 times log likelihood ratio), the difference in degrees of freedom, and (if test="Chi") the two-sided p-values for the chi-squared tests. Their interpretation is very similar to that in anova.glm.

If some of the fitted models are not Poisson point processes, then there is no statistical theory available to support a similar analysis. The function issues a warning, and (by default) returns a NULL value.

However if override=TRUE, then a kind of analysis of deviance table will be printed. The deviance' differences in this table are equal to 2 times the differences in the maximised values of the log pseudolikelihood (see ppm). At the time of writing, there is no statistical theory to support inferential interpretation of log pseudolikelihood ratios. The override option is provided for research purposes only!
