Finding convex hull?
Dear UseRs, I would like to know which function is the most efficient in finding convex hull of points in 3(or 2)-dimensional case? Functions for finding convex hull is the following: convex.hull (tripack), chull (grDevices), in.chull (sgeostat), convhulln (geometry), convexhull.xy (spatstat), calcConvexHull (PBSmapping). I also would like to know if there is a function that can...

sampling from the unoform distrubuton over a convex hull
Dear list, Does anyone have a suggestion (or better still) code for sampling from the uniform distribution over the convex hull of a set of points? Many thanks and best wishes, Ranjan

high dimensional convex hull
Does anyone know of a R package that will determine the convex hull of a high-dimensional dataset (say 4-10 dimensions). I know chull works for 2D data. I'm neophyte to R and convex hulls so please keep it simple. Many thanks Ben -- Ben Stapley. Biomolecular Sciences, UMIST, PO Box 88, Manchester M60 1QD.

This is implemented in library 'spatstat'. If x and y are vectors of coordinates of your initial set of points, library(spatstat) W <- convexhull.xy(x, y) P <- runifpoint(42, W) will compute the convex hull and generate 42 independent u...

Is xyz point inside 3d convex hull?
Hi everyone, I wonder if there is a code in r that can generate a 3d convex hull from a data-frame containing 3 columns and then use another database with the same three columns and for each row determine if the xyz point is inside or not the convex hull generated with the first database? The package geometry allows to calculate a hull and it's volume. I was planning...

[R-pkgs] CVXR: Convex Programming in R
Dear R Users, We are pleased to announce the first release of CVXR which implements Disciplined Convex Programming (DCP) in R on CRAN. Like CVXPY in Python, CVXR provides a domain specific language for formulating convexoptimization problems in a natural way following mathematical convention and DCP rules. The system analyzes the problem, verifies its convexity, converts it into a canonical form...

convex hulls
Does anybody know if there are functions to: 1. Define a convex hull on a space with more than 2 dimensions? chull just works for a plane. 2. Numerically select elements within a given complex hull.

convex-polygon in scatter plot
Hello, I am trying to draw a convex-polygon (envelope) connecting the outer points (of a particular class) in a scatter plot [which I want to do to illustrate the range of a particular type of samples in an ordination plot]. Is there any function to plot this kind of polygon? Kind regards Zlatko Petrin

[ESRI-L] outline polygons of point clumps
Sorry, I did not make my question clear. Since I have a point theme with many points, some of them may clump together. the problems here are: 1. how to find clumps in a point theme? 2. the convex-hull extension I found only deal with all the points in a theme at each time? how to make each convex hull around each point clump automatically? Thanks. Xiaohua On 5/12/06, Bob Booth <bbooth at esri.com> wrote: > Xiaohua, > > That would be one way to do it. There are o...

alpha shape function
Hi all, I want to approximate te shape of an area defined by a set of points. The convex hull is not good enough, but I think that an alpha shape would be fine. I did an RSiteSearch(), google search, RSeek.org search, looked at the CRAN Views, but was unable do find a function in R that computes the alpha shape. Does anyone know if there is such a function in R? Theank you very much...

qhull in R?
Hi, does anyone know if there is an implementation of qhull (http://www.qhull.org/) in R? anyone is planning on it? "Qhull computes convex hulls, Delaunay triangulations, halfspace intersections about a point, Voronoi diagrams, furthest-site Delaunay triangulations, and furthest-site Voronoi diagrams. It runs in 2-d, 3-d, 4-d, and higher dimensions. It implements the Quickhull algorithm for computing the convex hull. Qhull handles...

sparsenet: a new package for sparse model selection
We have put a new package sparsenet on CRAN. Sparsenet fits regularization paths for sparse model selection via coordinate descent, using a penalized least-squares framework and a non-convex penalty. The package is based on our JASA paper Rahul Mazumder, Jerome Friedman and Trevor Hastie: SparseNet : Coordinate Descent with Non-Convex Penalties. (JASA 2011) http://www.stanford.edu/~hastie/Papers/Sparsenet/jasa_MFH_final.pdf We use Zhang's MC+ penalty to i...

What exactly is an dgCMatrix-class. There are so many attributes.
Dear R list, I came across dgCMatrix. I believe this class is associated with sparse matrix. I see there are 8 attributes to train\$data, I am confused why are there so many, some are vectors, what do they do? Here's the R code: library(xgboost) data(agaricus.train, package='xgboost') data(agaricus.test, package='xgboost') train <- agaricus.train test <- agaricus.test

Questions on implementing logistic regression
Hi there, I am trying to write a tool which involves implementing logistic regression. With the batch gradient descent method, the convergence is guaranteed as it is a convex problem. However, I find that with the stochastic gradient decent method, it typically converges to some random points (i.e., not very close to the minimum point resulted from the batch method). I have tried different ways of decreasing the learning rate, and different starting points of weights. H...
