A symbolic routine to define that a surface is concave in two predictors in a formula argument to cgam.

1 | ```
s.conc.conc(x1, x2, numknots = c(0, 0), knots = list(k1 = 0, k2 = 0), space = c("E", "E"))
``` |

`x1` |
A numeric predictor which has the same length as the response vector. |

`x2` |
A numeric predictor which has the same length as the response vector. |

`numknots` |
A vector of the number of knots used to constrain |

`knots` |
A list of two vectors of knots used to constrain |

`space` |
A vector of the character specifying the method to create knots for |

"s.conc.conc" returns the vectors "x1" and "x2", and imposes on each vector six attributes: name, shape, numknots, knots, space and cvs.

The name attribute is used in the subroutine plotpersp; the numknots, knots and space attributes are the same as the numknots, knots and space arguments in "s.conc.conc"; the shape attribute is "tri_cvs"(doubly-concave); the cvs values for both vectors are FALSE. According to the value of the vector itself and its shape, numknots, knots, space and cvs attributes, the cone edges will be made by triangle spline basis functions in Meyer (2017). The cone edges are a set of basis employed in the hinge algorithm.

Note that "s.conc.conc" does not make the corresponding cone edges itself. It sets things up to a subroutine called trispl.fit

The vectors *x_1* and *x_2*. Each of them has six attributes, i.e., name: names of *x_1* and *x_2*; shape: "tri_cvs"(doubly-concave); numknots: the numknots argument in "s.conc.conc"; knots: the knots argument in "s.conc.conc"; space: the space argument in "s.conc.conc"; cvs: two logical values indicating the monotonicity of the isotonically-constrained surface with respect to *x_1* and *x_2*, which are both FALSE.
