Transform a Function into its P-P or Q-Q Version

Given a function object f containing both the estimated and theoretical versions of a summary function, these operations combine the estimated and theoretical functions into a new function. When plotted, the new function gives either the P-P plot or Q-Q plot of the original f.

Keywords
manip, spatial, nonparametric
Usage
PPversion(f, theo = "theo", columns = ".")

QQversion(f, theo = "theo", columns = ".")

Arguments
f

The function to be transformed. An object of class "fv".

theo

The name of the column of f that should be treated as the theoretical value of the function.

columns

Character vector, specifying the columns of f to which the transformation will be applied. Either a vector of names of columns of f, or one of the abbreviations recognised by fvnames.

Details

The argument f should be an object of class "fv", containing both empirical estimates \(\widehat f(r)\) and a theoretical value \(f_0(r)\) for a summary function.

The P--P version of f is the function \(g(x) = \widehat f (f_0^{-1}(x))\) where \(f_0^{-1}\) is the inverse function of \(f_0\). A plot of \(g(x)\) against \(x\) is equivalent to a plot of \(\widehat f(r)\) against \(f_0(r)\) for all \(r\). If f is a cumulative distribution function (such as the result of Fest or Gest) then this is a P--P plot, a plot of the observed versus theoretical probabilities for the distribution. The diagonal line \(y=x\) corresponds to perfect agreement between observed and theoretical distribution.

The Q--Q version of f is the function \(h(x) = f_0^{-1}(\widehat f(x))\). If f is a cumulative distribution function, a plot of \(h(x)\) against \(x\) is a Q--Q plot, a plot of the observed versus theoretical quantiles of the distribution. The diagonal line \(y=x\) corresponds to perfect agreement between observed and theoretical distribution. Another straight line corresponds to the situation where the observed variable is a linear transformation of the theoretical variable. For a point pattern X, the Q--Q version of Kest(X) is essentially equivalent to Lest(X).

Value

Another object of class "fv".
