Spatial Covariance Functions

Description

Spatial covariance functions for use with surf.gls.

Usage

expcov(r, d, alpha = 0, se = 1)
gaucov(r, d, alpha = 0, se = 1)
sphercov(r, d, alpha = 0, se = 1, D = 2)

Arguments

r vector of distances at which to evaluate the covariance
d range parameter
alpha proportion of nugget effect
se standard deviation at distance zero
D dimension of spheres.

Value

vector of covariance values.
