sub-.fData: Operator 'sub-.fData' to subset 'fData' objects

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

Description

This method provides an easy and natural way to subset a functional dataset stored in a fData object, without having to deal with the inner representation of fData class.

Usage

2
## S3 method for class 'fData'
fD[i, j, as_fData = TRUE]

Arguments

fD

the univariate functional dataset in form of fData object.

i

a valid expression to subset rows ( observations ) of the univariate functional dataset.

j

a valid expression to subset columns ( measurements over the grid ) of the univariate functional dataset (must be contiguous).

as_fData

logical flag to specify whether the output should be returned as an fData object containing the required subset or as a matrix of values, default is TRUE.

Value

The method returns either an fData object ( if as_fData = TRUE ) or a matrix ( if as_fData = FALSE ) containing the required subset ( both in terms of observations and measurement points ) of the univariate functional dataset.
