##### Test Whether An Object Is Empty

Checks whether the argument is an empty window, an empty point pattern, etc.

##### Usage

```
is.empty(x)
# S3 method for owin
is.empty(x)
# S3 method for ppp
is.empty(x)
# S3 method for psp
is.empty(x)
# S3 method for default
is.empty(x)
```

##### Arguments

- x
A window (object of class

`"owin"`

), a point pattern (object of class`"ppp"`

), or a line segment pattern (object of class`"psp"`

).

##### Details

This function tests whether the object `x`

represents an empty spatial object, such as an empty window,
a point pattern with zero points, or a line segment pattern
with zero line segments.

An empty window can be obtained as the output of
`intersect.owin`

, `erosion`

,
`opening`

, `complement.owin`

and some other operations.

An empty point pattern or line segment pattern can be obtained as the result of simulation.

##### Value

Logical value.
