components_ashape3d: Connected subsets computation

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

View source: R/components_ashape3d.R

Description

This function calculates and clusters the different connected components of the α-shape of a given sample of points in the three-dimensional space.

Usage

1
components_ashape3d(as3d, indexAlpha = 1)

Arguments

as3d

An object of class "ashape3d" that represents the α-shape of a given sample of points in the three-dimensional space, see ashape3d.

indexAlpha

A single value or vector with the indexes of as3d$alpha that should be used for the computation, see Details.

Details

The function components_ashape3d computes the connected components of the α-shape for each value of α in as3d$alpha[indexAlpha] when indexAlpha is numeric.

If indexAlpha="all" or indexAlpha="ALL" then the function computes the connected components of the α-shape for all values of α in as3d$alpha.

Value

If indexAlpha is a single value then the function returns a vector v of length equal to the sample size. For each sample point i, v[i] represents the label of the connected component to which the point belongs (for isolated points, v[i]=-1). The labels of the connected components are ordered by size where the largest one (in number of vertices) gets the smallest label which is one.

Otherwise components_ashape3d returns a list of vectors describing the connected components of the α-shape for each selected value of α.
