Create a sortedXyData Object

Share:

Description

This is a constructor function for the class of sortedXyData objects. These objects are mostly used in the initial function for a self-starting nonlinear regression model, which will be of the selfStart class.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

a numeric vector or an expression that will evaluate in data to a numeric vector

y

a numeric vector or an expression that will evaluate in data to a numeric vector

data

an optional data frame in which to evaluate expressions for x and y, if they are given as expressions

Value

A sortedXyData object. This is a data frame with exactly two numeric columns, named x and y. The rows are sorted so the x column is in increasing order. Duplicate x values are eliminated by averaging the corresponding y values.
