Variogram.corRatio {nlme}R Documentation

Calculate Semi-variogram for a corRatio Object


This method function calculates the semi-variogram values corresponding to the Rational Quadratic correlation model, using the estimated coefficients corresponding to object, at the distances defined by distance.


## S3 method for class 'corRatio':
Variogram(object, distance, sig2, length.out, ...)


object an object inheriting from class corRatio, representing an Rational Quadratic spatial correlation structure.
distance an optional numeric vector with the distances at which the semi-variogram is to be calculated. Defaults to NULL, in which case a sequence of length length.out between the minimum and maximum values of getCovariate(object) is used.
sig2 an optional numeric value representing the process variance. Defaults to 1.
length.out an optional integer specifying the length of the sequence of distances to be used for calculating the semi-variogram, when distance = NULL. Defaults to 50.
... some methods for this generic require additional arguments. None are used in this method.


a data frame with columns variog and dist representing, respectively, the semi-variogram values and the corresponding distances. The returned value inherits from class Variogram.
