`pattern` |
ppp object with pattern. |

`method` |
Character with specifying the method. Either |

`n_random` |
Integer with number of randomizations. |

`e_threshold` |
Double with minimum energy to stop reconstruction. |

`max_runs` |
Integer with maximum number of iterations if |

`no_change` |
Integer with number of iterations at which the reconstruction will stop if the energy does not decrease. |

`annealing` |
Double with probability to keep relocated point even if energy did not decrease. |

`comp_fast` |
Integer with threshold at which summary functions are estimated in a computational fast way. |

`n_points` |
Integer with number of points to be simulated. |

`window` |
owin object with window of simulated pattern. |

`weights` |
Vector with weights used to calculate energy. The first number refers to Gest(r), the second number to pcf(r). |

`r_length` |
Integer with number of intervals from |

`return_input` |
Logical if the original input data is returned. |

`simplify` |
Logical if only pattern will be returned if |

`verbose` |
Logical if progress report is printed. |

`plot` |
Logical if pcf(r) function is plotted and updated during optimization. |

The functions randomizes the observed pattern by using pattern reconstruction as described in Tscheschel & Stoyan (2006) and Wiegand & Moloney (2014). The algorithm shifts a point to a new location and keeps the change only, if the deviation between the observed and the reconstructed pattern decreases. The pair correlation function and the nearest neighbour distance function are used to describe the patterns.

For large patterns (`n > comp_fast`

) the pair correlation function can be estimated
from Ripley's K-function without edge correction. This decreases the computational
time. For more information see `estimate_pcf_fast`

.

The reconstruction can be stopped automatically if for n steps the energy does not
decrease. The number of steps can be controlled by `no_change`

and is set to
`no_change = Inf`

as default to never stop automatically.

The weights must be 0 < sum(weights) <= 1. To weight both summary functions identical,
use `weights = c(0.5, 0.5)`

.

`spatstat`

sets `r_length`

to 513 by default. However, a lower value decreases
the computational time, while increasing the "bumpiness" of the summary function.

The arguments `n_points`

and `window`

are used for `method="homo"`

only.

The algorithm starts with a random pattern.

The algorithm starts with a random but clustered pattern.

The algorithm starts with a random but heterogeneous pattern.
