Define a Bivariate Functional Parameter Object

Description

Functional parameter objects are used as arguments to functions that estimate functional parameters, such as smoothing functions like smooth.basis. A bivariate functional parameter object supplies the analogous information required for smoothing bivariate data using a bivariate functional data object $x(s,t)$. The arguments are the same as those for fdPar objects, except that two linear differential operator objects and two smoothing parameters must be applied, each pair corresponding to one of the arguments $s$ and $t$ of the bivariate functional data object.

Usage

bifdPar(bifdobj, Lfdobjs=int2Lfd(2), Lfdobjt=int2Lfd(2), lambdas=0, lambdat=0,
      estimate=TRUE)

Arguments

bifdobj

a bivariate functional data object.

Lfdobjs

either a nonnegative integer or a linear differential operator object for the first argument $s$.

If NULL, Lfdobjs depends on bifdobj[['sbasis']][['type']]:

  • bspline Lfdobjs <- int2Lfd(max(0, norder-2)), where norder = norder(bifdobj[['sbasis']]).

  • fourier Lfdobjs = a harmonic acceleration operator:

    Lfdobj <- vec2Lfd(c(0,(2*pi/diff(rngs))^2,0), rngs)

    where rngs = bifdobj[['sbasis']][['rangeval']].

  • anything elseLfdobj <- int2Lfd(0)

Lfdobjt

either a nonnegative integer or a linear differential operator object for the first argument $t$.

If NULL, Lfdobjt depends on bifdobj[['tbasis']][['type']]:

  • bspline Lfdobj <- int2Lfd(max(0, norder-2)), where norder = norder(bifdobj[['tbasis']]).

  • fourier Lfdobj = a harmonic acceleration operator:

    Lfdobj <- vec2Lfd(c(0,(2*pi/diff(rngt))^2,0), rngt)

    where rngt = bifdobj[['tbasis']][['rangeval']].

  • anything elseLfdobj <- int2Lfd(0)

lambdas

a nonnegative real number specifying the amount of smoothing to be applied to the estimated functional parameter $x(s,t)$ as a function of $s$..

lambdat

a nonnegative real number specifying the amount of smoothing to be applied to the estimated functional parameter $x(s,t)$ as a function of $t$..
