fs.test {mgcv} | R Documentation |
Implements a finite area test function based on one proposed by Tim Ramsay (2002).
fs.test(x,y,r0=.1,r=.5,l=3,b=1,exclude=TRUE) fs.boundary(r0=.1,r=.5,l=3,n.theta=20)
x,y |
Points at which to evaluate the test function. |
r0 |
The test domain is a sort of bent sausage. This is the radius of the inner bend |
r |
The radius of the curve at the centre of the sausage. |
l |
The length of an arm of the sausage. |
b |
The rate at which the function increases per unit increase in distance along the centre line of the sausage. |
exclude |
Should exterior points be set to |
n.theta |
How many points to use in a piecewise linear representation of a quarter of a circle, when generating the boundary curve. |
The function details are not given in the source article: but this is pretty close. The function is modified from Ramsay (2002), in that it bulges, rather than being flat: this makes a better test of the smoother.
fs.test
returns function evaluations, or NA
s for points
outside the boundary. fs.boundary
returns a list of x,y
points
to be jointed up in order to define/draw the boundary.
