This function plots a bivariate contour plot corresponding to a bivariate meta distribution with different margins and specified bivariate copula and parameter values or creates corresponding empirical contour plots based on bivariate copula data.
1 2 3 4 
u1,u2 
Data vectors of equal length with values in [0,1] (default: 
bw 
Bandwidth (smoothing factor; default: 
size 
Number of grid points; default: 
levels 
Vector of contour levels.
For Gaussian, Student t or exponential margins the default value ( 
family 
An integer defining the bivariate copula family or indicating an empirical contour plot: 
par 
Copula parameter; if empirical contour plot, 
par2 
Second copula parameter for t, BB1, BB6, BB7 and BB8 copulas (default: 
PLOT 
Logical; whether the results are plotted.
If 
margins 
Character; margins for the bivariate copula contour plot. Possible margins are: 
margins.par 
Parameter(s) of the distribution of the margins if necessary (default:

xylim 
A 2dimensional vector of the x and ylimits.
By default ( 
... 
Additional plot arguments. 
x 
A vector of length 
y 
A vector of length 
z 
A matrix of dimension 
Warning: The combination family = 0
(independence copula) and margins = "unif"
(uniform margins) is not possible because all z
values are equal.
