  ## S3 method for class 'ppm'
summary(object, ..., quick=FALSE, fine=FALSE)
  ## S3 method for class 'summary.ppm'
print(x, ...)

Arguments

object

A fitted point process model.

...

Ignored.

quick

Logical flag controlling the scope of the summary.

fine

Logical value passed to vcov.ppm determining whether to compute the quick, coarse estimate of variance (fine=FALSE, the default) or the slower, finer estimate (fine=TRUE).

x

Object of class "summary.ppm" as returned by summary.ppm.

Details

This is a method for the generic summary for the class "ppm". An object of class "ppm" describes a fitted point process model. See ppm.object) for details of this class.

summary.ppm extracts information about the type of model that has been fitted, the data to which the model was fitted, and the values of the fitted coefficients. (If quick=TRUE then only the information about the type of model is extracted.)

print.summary.ppm prints this information in a comprehensible format.

In normal usage, print.summary.ppm is invoked implicitly when the user calls summary.ppm without assigning its value to anything. See the examples.

You can also type coef(summary(object)) to extract a table of the fitted coefficients of the point process model object together with standard errors and confidence limits.

Value

summary.ppm returns an object of class "summary.ppm", while print.summary.ppm returns NULL.
