# ddPlot: Depth versus depth plot In DepthProc: Statistical Depth Functions for Multivariate Analysis

## Description

Produces a DD plot which allows to compare two multivirate datasets or to compare a subject dataset with theoretical distribution.

## Usage

 1 2 ddPlot(x, y, scale = FALSE, location = FALSE, name_x = "X", name_y = "Y", title = "Depth vs. depth plot", ...) 

## Arguments

 x The first or only data sample for ddPlot. y The second data sample. x and y must be of the same space. scale logical. determines whether the dispersion is to be aligned. location determines whether the location is to be aligned to 0 vector with depth median. name_x name for data set x. It will be passed to drawing function. name_y name for data set y. title title of the plot. ... Parameters passed to depth function

## Details

For two probability distributions F and G , both in {{{R}}^{d}} , we can define depth vs. depth plot being very useful generalization of the one dimensional quantile-quantile plot:

DD(F,G)=≤ft\{ ≤ft( D({z},F),D({z},G) \right),{z}\in {{{R}}^{d}} \right\}

Its sample counterpart calculated for two samples {{{X}}^{n}}=\{{{X}_{1}},.,{{X}_{n}}\} from F , and {{Y}^{m}}=\{{{Y}_{1}},...,{{Y}_{m}}\} from G is defined as

DD({{F}_{n}},{{G}_{m}})=≤ft\{ ≤ft( D({z},{{F}_{n}}),D({z},{{G}_{m}}) \right),{z}\in \{{{{X}}^{n}}\cup {{{Y}}^{m}}\} \right\}
