Defines functions int2Lfd

Documented in int2Lfd

int2Lfd <- function(m=0)
#INT2LFD converts a nonnegative integer to a linear differential
#  operator object that is equivalent to D^m.  The range of the
#  functional data object in any cell is set to [0,1], and is
#  not actually used when a linear differential operator object
#  of this nature is applied.  
#  In the event that m is already a linear differential operator
#  object, it returns the object immediately.  Thus, INT2LFD can
#  be used to screen whether an object is an integer or not.

if (m < 0)   stop("Argument is negative.")

#  all the checks passed, set up a functional data object
#  The range will not be used in this case, and can be set
#  to [0, 1]
