##### Multitype K Function (Dot-type) for Linear Point Pattern

For a multitype point pattern on a linear network, estimate the multitype $K$ function which counts the expected number of points (of any type) within a given distance of a point of type $i$.

- Keywords
- spatial, nonparametric

##### Usage

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

##### Arguments

- X
- The observed point pattern,
from which an estimate of the dot type $K$ function
$K_{i\bullet}(r)$ will be computed.
An object of class
`"lpp"`

which must be a multitype point pattern (a marked point pattern whose marks are - i
- Number or character string identifying the type (mark value)
of the points in
`X`

from which distances are measured. Defaults to the first level of`marks(X)`

. - r
- numeric vector. The values of the argument $r$ at which the $K$-function $K_{i\bullet}(r)$ should be evaluated. There is a sensible default. First-time users are strongly advised not to specify this argument. See below for important co
- correction
- Geometry correction.
Either
`"none"`

or`"Ang"`

. See Details. - ...
- Ignored.

##### Details

This is a counterpart of the function `Kdot`

for a point pattern on a linear network (object of class `"lpp"`

).

The argument `i`

will be interpreted as
levels of the factor `marks(X)`

.
If `i`

is missing, it defaults to the first
level of the marks factor.

The argument `r`

is the vector of values for the
distance $r$ at which $K_{i\bullet}(r)$ should be evaluated.
The values of $r$ must be increasing nonnegative numbers
and the maximum $r$ value must not exceed the radius of the
largest disc contained in the window.

##### Value

- An object of class
`"fv"`

(see`fv.object`

).

##### Warnings

The argument `i`

is interpreted as a
level of the factor `marks(X)`

. Beware of the usual
trap with factors: numerical values are not
interpreted in the same way as character values.
