Estimates parameters for a void point process by maximising the Palm likelihood. This approach was first proposed by Tanaka et al. (2008) for two-dimensional Thomas processes. Generalisation to d-dimensional void processes was made by Jones-Todd (2017).
1 2 |
points |
A matrix containing locations of observed points, where each row corresponds to a point and each column corresponds to a dimension. |
lims |
A matrix with two columns, corresponding to the upper and lower limits of each dimension, respectively. |
R |
Truncation distance for the difference process. |
edge.correction |
The method used for the correction of edge
effects. Either |
start |
A named vector of starting values for the model parameters. |
bounds |
A list with named components. Each component should be a vector of length two, giving the upper and lower bounds for the named parameter. |
trace |
Logical; if |
Parameters to estimate are as follows:
Dc
, the baseline density of observed points.
Dp
, the density of unobserved parents that cause voids.
tau
, the radius of the deletion process centred at each parent.
An R6 reference class object. Extraction of the information held within is best handled by functions coef.nspp, confint.nspp, summary.nspp, and plot.nspp.
