View source: R/harm.R

Description

Returns a matrix of harmonic functions usable for modeling periodic effects

Usage

1
harm(x, ord=1, per=1, verbose=FALSE )

Arguments

x

A numeric variable.

ord

Integer, the order of the harmonic.

per

Numeric, the length of the period on the x scale.

verbose

Logical: shall I tell what I do with dates?

Details

Columns are constructed under the assumption that the periodic function has period per on the x scale. Thus, the first columns is defined as sin(2*pi*x/per), cos(2*pi*x/per), sin(4*pi*x/per) etc.

Since sin and cos are periodic functions there is no requirement that x be in any particular range.

Value

A matrix with nrow(x) rows and 2*deg columns and columnnames sin1, cos1, sin2, cos2 etc.
