Description

This function extracts eigenvectors and eigenvalues from a spatial weight matrix.

Usage

1
weigen( x = NULL, type = "knn", k = 4, threshold = 0.25, enum = NULL )

Arguments

x

Matrix of spatial point coordinates (N x 2), ShapePolygons object (N spatial units), or an user-specified spatial weight matrix (N x N) (see Details)

type

Type of spatial weights. The currently available options are "knn" for the k-nearest neighbor-based weights, and "tri" for the Delaunay triangulation-based weights. If ShapePolygons are provided for x, type is ignored, and the rook-type neighborhood matrix is created

k

Number of nearest neighbors. It is used if type ="knn"

threshold

Threshold for the eigenvalues (scalar). Suppose that lambda_1 is the maximum eigenvalue. Then, this fucntion extracts eigenvectors whose corresponding eigenvalues are equal or greater than [threshold x lambda_1]. It must be a value between 0 and 1. Default is 0.25 (see Details)

enum

Optional. The muximum acceptable mumber of eigenvectors to be used for spatial modeling (scalar)

Details

If user-specified spatial weight matrix is provided for x, this function returns the eigen-pairs of the matrix. Otherwise, if a SpatialPolygons object is provided to x, the rook-type neighborhood matrix is created using this polygon, and eigen-decomposed. Otherwise, if point coordinats are provided to x, a spatial weight matrix is created according to type, and eigen-decomposed.

By default, the ARPACK routine is implemented for fast eigen-decomposition.

threshold = 0.25 (default) is a standard setting for topology-based ESF (see Tiefelsdorf and Griffith, 2007) while threshold = 0.00 is a usual setting for distance-based ESF.

Value

sf

Matrix of the first L eigenvectors (N x L)

ev

Vector of the first L eigenvalues (L x 1)

other

List of other outcomes, which are internally used
