Inhomogeneous Linear Pair Correlation Function
Computes an estimate of the inhomogeneous linear pair correlation function for a point pattern on a linear network.
linearpcfinhom(X, lambda=NULL, r=NULL, ..., correction="Ang", normalise=TRUE)
- Point pattern on linear network (object of class
- Intensity values for the point pattern. Either a numeric vector,
function, a pixel image (object of class

- Optional. Numeric vector of values of the function argument $r$. There is a sensible default.
- Arguments passed to
density.defaultto control the smoothing.

This command computes the inhomogeneous version of the linear pair correlation function from point pattern data on a linear network.

lambda is given, then it is expected to provide estimated values
of the intensity of the point process at each point of
lambda may be a numeric vector (of length equal to
the number of points in

lambda is a fitted point process model,
the default behaviour is to update the model by re-fitting it to
the data, before computing the fitted intensity.
This can be disabled by setting
correction="none", the calculations do not include
any correction for the geometry of the linear network.
correction="Ang", the pair counts are weighted using
Ang's correction (Ang, 2010).
