Overview

inflection is a package that finds the inflection point of a planar curve which is given as a data frame of discrete (xi,yi) points.

Basic functions are:

Install the inflection package and then read vignettes:

Installation

Why should I use inflection package in R?

Do scientists use inflection package in their work?

Yes, inflection package has approximately 20K installations in RStudio and next is a sample of works that have used it for computing inflection points:
