The expected interaction is defined as the linear relationship between the interaction counts and the distance between two loci. See details for additional informations.

The expected value is the interaction frequency between two loci that one would expect based on a sole dependency on the genomic proximity of these fragments in the linear genome. This can be estimated using two different methods, mean or loess.
The first method (default) is simply based on the mean counts of each diagonal. If logbin is false, the expected counts will be estimated for each bin of the contact maps. If logbin is true, the binsize will change according to the distance to the diagonal. Short (resp. long) distance will be estimated with smaller (larger) bins. This method works for all resolutions.
The second method is based on a Lowess regression model and works usually fine with low resolution data (250Kb to 1Mb). At higher resolution, the lowess regression might be difficult to fit. The lowess smoothing has two parameters : span and bin. The span corresponds to the fraction of the data used for smoothing. Instead of computing the local polynomial fitting at each data point, a window of size delta (bin parameter) is applied on the data and a linear interpolation is used to fill in the fitted values within the window. The default is 1% of the range of x. If delta=0 all but identical x values are estimated independently. The variance is then estimated using the same span and bin parameter, at each interpolation points. The points inside a window are weighted so that nearby points get the most weight (tricube weight function).
