# Depth calculation

### Description

Depth calculation

### Usage

1 |

### Arguments

`u` |
Numerical vector or matrix whose depth is to be calculated. Dimension has to be the same as that of the observations. |

`X` |
The data as a matrix, data frame or list. If it is a matrix or data frame, then each row is viewed as one multivariate observation. If it is a list, all components must be numerical vectors of equal length (coordinates of observations). |

`method` |
Character string which determines the depth function. |

`name` |
name for this data set - it will be used on plots. |

`threads` |
number of threads used in parallel computations. Default value -1 means that all possible cores will be used. |

`...` |
parameters specific to method - see |
