Description

Contour plot of a Dirichlet distribution in S^2.

Usage

1
diri.contour(a, n = 100, x = NULL)

Arguments

a

A vector with three elements corresponding to the 3 (estimated) parameters.

n

The number of grid points to consider over which the density is calculated.

x

This is either NULL (no data) or contains a 3 column matrix with compositional data.

Details

The user can plot only the contour lines of a Dirichlet with a given vector of parameters, or can also add the relevant data should he/she wish to.

Value

A ternary diagram with the points and the Dirichlet contour lines.
