Intensity of Fitted Point Process Model
Computes the intensity of a fitted point process model.
## S3 method for class 'ppm': intensity(X, ...)
- A fitted point process model (object of class
- Arguments passed to
predict.ppmin some cases. See Details.
This is a method for the generic function

The intensity of a point process model is the expected number of random points per unit area.
X is a Poisson point process model, the intensity of the
process is computed exactly.
The result is a numerical value if
is a stationary Poisson point process, and a pixel image if
is non-stationary. (In the latter case, the resolution of the pixel
image is controlled by the arguments
... which are passed
X is another Gibbs point process model, the intensity is
computed approximately using the Poisson-saddlepoint approximation
(Baddeley and Nair, 2012). Currently this is implemented only for
- A numeric value (if the model is stationary) or a pixel image.
