nnbr: nearest neighbour distances from data in one or two dimensions

Description

This function calculates the k nearest neighbour distance from each value in x to the remainder of the data. In two dimensions, Euclidean distance is used after standardising the data to have unit variance in each component.

Usage

1
nnbr(x, k)

Arguments

x

the vector, or two-column matrix, of data.

k

the required order of nearest neighbour.

Details

see Section 1.7.1 of the reference below.

Value

the vector of nearest neighbour distances.
