Variance-Covariance Matrix for a Fitted Cluster Point Process Model

Returns the variance-covariance matrix of the estimates of the parameters of a fitted cluster point process model.

Keywords
models, methods, spatial
Usage
## S3 method for class 'kppm':
vcov(object, ...,
          what=c("vcov", "corr", "fisher", "internals"))
Arguments
object
A fitted cluster point process model (an object of class "kppm".)
...
Ignored.
what
Character string (partially-matched) that specifies what matrix is returned. Options are "vcov" for the variance-covariance matrix, "corr" for the correlation matrix, and "fisher" for the Fisher infor
Details

This function computes the asymptotic variance-covariance matrix of the estimates of the canonical (regression) parameters in the cluster point process model object. It is a method for the generic function vcov. The result is an n * n matrix where n = length(coef(model)).

To calculate a confidence interval for a regression parameter, use confint as shown in the examples.

Value

  • A square matrix.
