Mark Connection Function for Multitype Point Pattern on Linear Network

For a multitype point pattern on a linear network, estimate the mark connection function from points of type $i$ to points of type $j$.

This is a counterpart of the function markconnect 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 $p_{ij}(r)$ 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.



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.
