Kfn {spatial}

Compute K-fn of a Point Pattern
Package: 
spatial
Version: 
7.3-7

Description

Actually computes L = sqrt(K/pi).

Usage

Kfn(pp, fs, k=100)

Arguments

pp
a list such as a pp object, including components x and y
fs
full scale of the plot
k
number of regularly spaced distances in (0, fs)

Details

relies on the domain D having been set by ppinit or ppregion.

Values

A list with components

x
vector of distances
y
vector of L-fn values
k
number of distances returned -- may be less than k if fs is too large
dmin
minimum distance between pair of points
lm
maximum deviation from L(t) = t
