K.plotR Documentation

Kendall plot

Description

This function plots the expectation of the order statistics under the null hypothesis of independence against the ordered empirical copula values. The data is transformed to ranks.

Usage

K.plot(data, add = F, ...)

Arguments

data

a n by d matrix of observations

add

whether to superimpose lines to an existing graph. Default to F

...

additional arguments passed to points

Details

The function uses integrate and may fail for large d or large n. If n>200, the fallback is to generate a corresponding sample of uniform variates and to compare the empirical copula of the sample generated under the null hypothesis with the one obtained from the sample.

Value

The Kendall plot corresponding to the data at hand

Author(s)

Examples

#Independence
K.plot(matrix(runif(2000),ncol=2))
#Negative dependence
K.plot(rCopula(n=1000,claytonCopula(param=-0.5,dim=2)),add=TRUE,col=2)
#Perfect negative dependence
K.plot(rCopula(n=1000,claytonCopula(param=-1,dim=2)),add=TRUE,col=6)
#Positive dependence
K.plot(rCopula(n=1000,claytonCopula(param=iTau(claytonCopula(0.3),0.5),dim=2)),add=TRUE,col=3)
#Perfect positive dependence
K.plot(rCopula(n=1000,claytonCopula(param=iTau(claytonCopula(0.3),1),dim=2)),add=TRUE,col=4)
