Excerpts from bankruptcy four of The R Book

Chapter four: point Set timber and Code
how to make a quantity plot and a barycenter plot, and calculate point set timber with the set of rules LeafsFirst, that is carried out in functionality ``leafsfirst''. This functionality takes as an issue a piecewise consistent functionality object.

The multimodal second example
<img border="0" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/wiley-ems/3D_Modal_Destiny_320.jpg"; />
(Click on photograph to enlarge)

We think about the density proven within the second three-modal density, and calculate first a piecewise consistent functionality item representing this functionality, after which calculate the extent set tree.
<pre>N<-c(35,35) # dimension of the grid pcf<-sim.data(N=N,type="mulmod") # piecewise consistent functionality lst.big<-leafsfirst(pcf) # point set tree </pre> We could make the amount plot with the command ''plotvolu(lst)''. notwithstanding, it's swifter first to prune the extent set tree, after which plot the diminished point set tree. functionality ''treedisc'' takes because the first argument a degree set tree, because the moment argument the unique piecewise consistent functionality, and the third argument ''ngrid'' offers the variety of degrees within the pruned point set tree. we attempt the variety of degrees ngrid=100. <pre>lst<-treedisc(lst.big,pcf,ngrid=100) </pre>
Now we might make a quantity plot with the functionality ''plotvolu''.
<pre>plotvolu(lst) </pre>
We draw barycenter plots with the functionality ''plotbary''.
<pre> plotbary(lst,coordi=2) # 2d coordinate </pre>
Note: We may well locate the quantity and the positioning of the modes with the ''modecent'' functionality, which takes as argument a degree set tree. functionality ''locofmax'' takes as argument a piecewise consistent functionality and calculates the site of the maximum.
<pre>modecent(lst) locofmax(pcf) </pre>

The 3D tetrahedron example
<img border="0" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/wiley-ems/3D_Example_320.jpg"; />
(Click on snapshot to amplify)

We examine the third-dimensional instance. The calculation is way extra time eating this time.
<pre>N<-c(32,32,32) # the dimensions of the grid pcf<-sim.data(N=N,type="tetra3d") # piecewise consistent functionality lst.big<-leafsfirst(pcf) # point set tree lst<-treedisc(lst.big,pcf,ngrid=200) # pruned point set tree plotvolu(lst,modelabel=FALSE) # quantity plot plotvolu(lst,cutlev=0.010,ptext=0.00045,colo=TRUE) # zooming coordi<-1 # coordinate, coordi = 1, 2, three plotbary(lst,coordi=coordi,ptext=0.0006) # barycenter plot </pre>
This time we have now used parameter ''cutlev'' to make a zoomed quantity plot. while this parameter is given, then merely the a part of the point set tree is proven that is above the worth ''cutlev''. in most cases it truly is higher to zoom in to the amount plot by way of slicing the tails of the amount functionality away. this is often completed through the parameter ''xlim''. We may possibly us for instance the next command to make a ``vertically zoomed'' quantity plot.
<pre>plotvolu(lst,xlim=c(140,220),ptext=0.00045, colo=TRUE,modelabel=FALSE) </pre>
Additional parameters which we've used are the ''modelabel'', that is used to suppress the plotting of the mode labels, ''ptext'', which lifts the mode labels with the given quantity, and ''colo'', which colours the graph of the quantity functionality to make a comparability with the barycenter plots easier.

We examine the four-dimensional example.
<pre>N<-c(16,16,16,16) pcf<-sim.data(N=N,type="penta4d") lst.big<-leafsfirst(pcf) lst<-treedisc(lst.big,pcf,ngrid=100) plotvolu(lst,modelabel=F) # quantity plot plotvolu(lst,cutlev=0.0008,ptext=0.00039,colo=TRUE) # zooming coordi<-1 # coordinate, coordi = 1, 2, three, four plotbary(lst,coordi=coordi,ptext=0.0003) # barycenter plot </pre>
