rMosaicSet: Mosaic Random Set

Description

Generate a random set by taking a random selection of tiles of a given tessellation.

Usage

rMosaicSet(X, p=0.5)

Arguments

X

A tessellation (object of class "tess").

p

Probability of including a given tile. A number strictly between 0 and 1.

Value

A window (object of class "owin").

Details

Given a tessellation X, this function randomly selects some of the tiles of X, including each tile with probability \(p\) independently of the other tiles. The selected tiles are then combined to form a set in the plane.

One application of this is Switzer's (1965) example of a random set which has a Markov property. It is constructed by generating X according to a Poisson line tessellation (see rpoislinetess).
