Arguments

ppdata

Observed spatial point process of class ppp.

cutoff

Desired failure probability alpha, which is the probability of having unobserved events outside the high-risk zone.

numit

Number of iterations to perform (per tested value for cutoff). Default value is 1000.

tol

Tolerance: acceptable difference between the desired failure probability and the fraction of high-risk zones not covering all events. Default value is 0.02.

nxprob

Probability of having unobserved events. Default value is 0.1.

intens

(optional) estimated intensity of the observed process (object of class "im", see density.ppp). If not given, it will be estimated.

covmatrix

(optional) Covariance matrix of the kernel of a normal distribution, only meaningful if no intensity is given. If not given, it will be estimated.

simulate

The type of simulation, can be one of "thinning", "intens" or "clintens"

radiusClust

(optional) radius of the circles around the parent points in which the cluster points are located. Only used for simulate = "clintens".

clustering

a value >= 1 which describes the amount of clustering; the adjusted estimated intensity of the observed pattern is divided by this value; it also is the parameter of the Poisson distribution for the number of points per cluster. Only used for simulate = "clintens".

verbose

logical. Should information on tested values/progress be printed?

Details

For a desired failure probability alpha, the corresponding parameter which is to use when determining a high-risk zone is found in an iterative procedure. The simulation procedure is the same as in eval_method. In every iteration, the number of high-risk zones with at least one unobserved event located outside is compared with the desired failure probability. If necessary, the value of cutoff is increased or decreased. The final value alphastar can than be used in det_hrz.

If there are restriction areas in the observation window, use bootcor_restr instead.

Value

An object of class bootcorr, which consists of a list of the final value for alpha (alphastar) and a data.frame course containing information on the simulation course, e.g. the tested values.
