depth-package: Depth functions tools for multivariate analysis

Description

This is a collection of functions applying depth functions methodology to multivariate analysis. Besides allowing calculation of depth values and depth-based location estimators, the package includes functions for drawing contour plots and perspective plots of depth functions.

All functions apply to a multivariate data set. Function depth calculates the depth of a point with respect to the data set. Depth functions covered are Tukey's, Liu's and Oja's. Functions med, trmean and ctrmean return depth-based medians, classical-like trimmed means and centroid trimmed means, respectively. Functions perspdepth and isodepth draw perspective and contour plots, respectively. Functions sdepth, smed, strmeasure and scontour give equivalent results for directional data.
