xyTable {grDevices} R Documentation

## Multiplicities of (x,y) Points, e.g., for a Sunflower Plot

### Description

Given (x,y) points, determine their multiplicity – checking for equality only up to some (crude kind of) noise. Note that this is special kind of 2D binning.

### Usage

xyTable(x, y = NULL, digits)


### Arguments

 x, y numeric vectors of the same length; alternatively other (x, y) argument combinations as allowed by xy.coords(x, y). digits integer specifying the significant digits to be used for determining equality of coordinates. These are compared after rounding them via signif(*, digits).

### Value

A list with three components of same length,

 x x coordinates, rounded and sorted. y y coordinates, rounded (and sorted within x). number multiplicities (positive integers); i.e., number[i] is the multiplicity of (x[i], y[i]).

sunflowerplot which typically uses xyTable(); signif.

### Examples

xyTable(iris[, 3:4], digits = 6)

## Discretized uncorrelated Gaussian:

require(stats)
xy <- data.frame(x = round(sort(rnorm(100))), y = rnorm(100))
xyTable(xy, digits = 1)
