Calculates an estimate of the multitype L-function
i to any type)
for a multitype point pattern.
The observed point pattern, from which an estimate of the dot-type L function Lij(r) will be computed. It must be a multitype point pattern (a marked point pattern whose marks are a factor). See under Details.

An alternative way to specify
This command computes
Li.(r) = sqrt(Ki.(r)/pi)
where Ki.(r) is the multitype K-function
from points of type
i to points of any type.
Kdot for information
Ldot first calls
Kdot to compute the estimate of the
K-function, and then applies the square root transformation.
For a marked Poisson point process, the theoretical value of the L-function is Li.(r) = r. The square root also has the effect of stabilising the variance of the estimator, so that Li. is more appropriate for use in simulation envelopes and hypothesis tests.
