check.mono  R Documentation 
Check that a fitted detection function is monotone nonincreasing.
check.mono( df, strict = TRUE, n.pts = 100, tolerance = 1e06, plot = FALSE, max.plots = 6 )
df 
a fitted detection function object 
strict 
if 
n.pts 
number of equallyspaced points between left and right truncation at which to evaluate the detection function (default 100) 
tolerance 
numerical tolerance for monotonicity checks (default 1e6) 
plot 
plot a diagnostic highlighting the nonmonotonic areas (default

max.plots 
when 
Evaluates a series of points over the range of the detection function (left to right truncation) then determines:
1. If the detection function is always less than or equal to its value at
the left truncation (g(x)<=g(left)
, or usually g(x)<=g(0)
).
2. (Optionally) The detection function is always monotone decreasing
(g(x[i])<=g(x[i1])
). This check is only performed when
strict=TRUE
(the default).
3. The detection function is never less than 0 (g(x)>=0
).
4. The detection function is never greater than 1 (g(x)<=1
).
For models with covariates in the scale parameter of the detection function is evaluated at all observed covariate combinations.
Currently covariates in the shape parameter are not supported.
TRUE
if the detection function is monotone, FALSE
if
it's not. warning
s are issued to warn the user that the function is
nonmonotonic.
