predict.bSpline

Evaluate a Spline at New Values of x

The predict methods for the classes that inherit from the virtual classes bSpline and polySpline are used to evaluate the spline or its derivatives. The plot method for a spline object first evaluates predict with the x argument missing, then plots the resulting xyVector with type = "l".

Usage
"predict"(object, x, nseg = 50, deriv = 0, ...) "predict"(object, x, nseg = 50, deriv = 0, ...) "predict"(object, x, nseg = 50, deriv = 0, ...) "predict"(object, x, nseg = 50, deriv = 0, ...) "predict"(object, x, nseg = 50, deriv = 0, ...)
Arguments
object
An object that inherits from the bSpline or the polySpline class.
x
A numeric vector of x values at which to evaluate the spline. If this argument is missing a suitable set of x values is generated as a sequence of nseq segments spanning the range of the knots.
nseg
A positive integer giving the number of segments in a set of equally-spaced x values spanning the range of the knots in object. This value is only used if x is missing.
deriv
An integer between 0 and splineOrder(object) - 1 specifying the derivative to evaluate.
...
further arguments passed to or from other methods.
Value

an xyVector with components
x
the supplied or inferred numeric vector of x values
y
the value of the spline (or its deriv'th derivative) at the x vector
