Residual K Function
Given a point process model fitted to a point pattern dataset, this function computes the residual $K$ function, which serves as a diagnostic for goodness-of-fit of the model.
- Object to be analysed.
Either a fitted point process model (object of class
"ppm"), a point pattern (object of class
"ppp"), a quadrature scheme (object of class
"quad"), or the value returned by a pr

This command provides a diagnostic for the goodness-of-fit of a point process model fitted to a point pattern dataset. It computes a residual version of the $K$ function of the dataset, which should be approximately zero if the model is a good fit to the data.
In normal use,
object is a fitted point process model
or a point pattern. Then
Kres first calls
to compute both the nonparametric estimate of the $K$ function
and its model compensator. Then
Kres computes the
difference between them, which is the residual $K$-function.

- A function value table (object of class
"fv"), essentially a data frame of function values. There is a plot method for this class. See
