Theoretical nearest neighbour distribution function

Description

Calculate the theoretical nearest neighbour distribution function.

Usage

1

Arguments

density

The density of the point pattern, i.e. the number of points per unit area.

s

A vector of distances at which to evaluate Fzero

Details

Fzero returns the nearest neighbour distribution for a homogeneous planar Poisson process. In fortran notation, Fzero(s) is FZERO = 1-EXP(-PI*DENSITY*(S**2)).

Value

A vector of the same length as s, containing the value of Fzero at the distances in s.
