EuclideanSpace-class: Class "EuclideanSpace"

Description Usage Arguments Objects from the Class Slots Extends Methods Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

The distribution-classes contain a slot where the sample space is stored. One typical sample space is the Euclidean Space in dimension k.

Usage

1

Arguments

dimension

positive integer: dimension of the Euclidean space (default =1)

Objects from the Class

Objects could theoretically be created by calls of the form new("EuclideanSpace", dimension, name). Usually an object of this class is not needed on its own. EuclideanSpace is the mother-class of the class Reals, which is generated automatically when a univariate absolutly continuous distribution is instantiated.

Slots

dimension

Object of class "numeric": the dimension of the space, by default = 1

name

Object of class "character": the name of the space, by default = "Euclidean Space"

Extends

Class "rSpace", directly.

Methods

initialize

signature(.Object = "EuclideanSpace"): initialize method

liesIn

signature(object = "EuclideanSpace", x = "numeric"): Does a particular vector lie in this space or not?

dimension

signature(object = "EuclideanSpace"): returns the dimension of the space

dimension<-

signature(object = "EuclideanSpace"): modifies the dimension of the space
