# Kmodel.ppm

##### K Function or Pair Correlation Function of Gibbs Point Process model

Returns the theoretical \(K\) function or the pair correlation function of a fitted Gibbs point process model.

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for ppm
Kmodel(model, …)
``` # S3 method for ppm
pcfmodel(model, …)

##### Arguments

- model
A fitted Poisson or Gibbs point process model (object of class

`"ppm"`

) typically obtained from the model-fitting algorithm`ppm`

.- …
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 R language,
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 R language,
which takes one argument `r`

.
