Create a Constant Basis


Create a constant basis object, defining a single basis function whose value is everywhere 1.0.


create.constant.basis(rangeval=c(0, 1), names="const", axes=NULL)



a vector of length 2 containing the initial and final values of argument t defining the interval over which the functional data object can be evaluated. However, this is seldom used since the value of the basis function does not depend on the range or any argument values.


a character vector of length 1.


an optional list used by selected plot functions to create custom axes. If this axes argument is not NULL, functions plot.basisfd, plot.fd, plot.fdSmooth plotfit.fd, plotfit.fdSmooth, and plot.Lfd will create axes via x$axes[[1]] and x$axes[-1]. The primary example of this uses list("axesIntervals", ...), e.g., with Fourier bases to create CanadianWeather plots


a basis object with type component const.
