Ignored.
Details

This function computes an approximation to the $K$ function or the pair correlation function of a Gibbs point process. The functions Kmodel and pcfmodel are generic. The functions documented here are the methods for the class "ppm". The approximation is only available for stationary pairwise-interaction models. It uses the second order Poisson-saddlepoint approximation (Baddeley and Nair, 2012b) which is a combination of the Poisson-Boltzmann-Emden and Percus-Yevick approximations.

The return value is a function in the Rlanguage, which takes one argument r. Evaluation of this function, on a numeric vector r, yields values of the desired $K$ function or pair correlation function at these distance values.

Value

  • A function in the Rlanguage, which takes one argument r.
