# envelopeArray

##### Array of Simulation Envelopes of Summary Function

Compute an array of simulation envelopes using a summary function that returns an array of curves.

- Keywords
- spatial, nonparametric, iteration

##### Usage

`envelopeArray(X, fun, …, dataname = NULL, verb = FALSE, reuse = TRUE)`

##### Arguments

- X
Object containing point pattern data. A point pattern (object of class

`"ppp"`

,`"lpp"`

,`"pp3"`

or`"ppx"`

) or a fitted point process model (object of class`"ppm"`

,`"kppm"`

or`"lppm"`

).- fun
Function that computes the desired summary statistic for a point pattern. The result of

`fun`

should be a function array (object of class`"fasp"`

).- …
Arguments passed to

`envelope`

to control the simulations, or passed to`fun`

when evaluating the function.- dataname
Optional character string name for the data.

- verb
Logical value indicating whether to print progress reports.

- reuse
Logical value indicating whether the envelopes in each panel should be based on the same set of simulated patterns (

`reuse=TRUE`

, the default) or on different, independent sets of simulated patterns (`reuse=FALSE`

).

##### Details

This command is the counterpart of `envelope`

when the function `fun`

that is evaluated on each simulated point pattern
will return an object of class `"fasp"`

representing an array of
summary functions.

Simulated point patterns are generated according to the
rules described for `envelope`

. In brief,
if `X`

is a point pattern, the algorithm generates
simulated point patterns of the same kind, according to complete
spatial randomness. If `X`

is a fitted model, the algorithm
generates simulated point patterns according to this model.

For each simulated point pattern `Y`

, the function `fun`

is invoked. The result `Z <- fun(Y, ...)`

should be an object of
class `"fasp"`

representing an array of summary functions.
The dimensions of the array `Z`

should be the same
for each simulated pattern `Y`

.

This algorithm finds the simulation envelope of the summary functions in each cell of the array.

##### Value

An object of class `"fasp"`

representing
an array of envelopes.
