# linearK

##### Linear K Function

Computes an estimate of the linear $K$ function for a point pattern on a linear network.

- Keywords
- spatial, nonparametric

##### Usage

`linearK(X, r=NULL, ..., correction="Ang")`

##### Arguments

- X
- Point pattern on linear network (object of class
`"lpp"`

). - r
- Optional. Numeric vector of values of the function argument $r$. There is a sensible default.
- ...
- Ignored.
- correction
- Geometry correction.
Either
`"none"`

or`"Ang"`

. See Details.

##### Details

This command computes the linear $K$ function from point pattern data on a linear network.

If `correction="none"`

, the calculations do not include
any correction for the geometry of the linear network. The result is the
network $K$ function as defined by Okabe and Yamada (2001).

If `correction="Ang"`

, the pair counts are weighted using
Ang's correction (Ang, 2010; Ang et al, 2012).

##### Value

- Function value table (object of class
`"fv"`

).
