https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=isotone). — solveNonDecreasing" />

Return a vector of length y that is a function of x (differs at must where x differs) obeying the same order constraints as x. This vector is picked as close to y (by square-distance) as possible.

solveNonDecreasing(varName, x, y, w = NULL)

Arguments

varName

character, name of variable

x

numeric, factor, or character input (not empty, no NAs).

y

numeric or castable to such (same length as x no NAs), output to match

w

numeric positive, same length as x (weights, can be NULL)

Value

isotonicly adjusted y (non-decreasing)

Examples

if(requireNamespace("isotone", quietly = TRUE)) { solveNonDecreasing('v', 1:3, c(1,2,1)) }
