SpatialfdaR: Spatial Functional Data Analysis

Finite element modeling (FEM) uses meshes of triangles to define surfaces. A surface within a triangle may be either linear or quadratic. In the order one case each node in the mesh is associated with a basis function and the basis is called the order one finite element basis. In the order two case each edge mid-point is also associated with a basis function. Functions are provided for smoothing, density function estimation point evaluation and plotting results. Two papers illustrating the finite element data analysis are Sangalli, L.M., Ramsay, J.O., Ramsay, T.O. (2013)<> and Bernardi, M.S, Carey, M., Ramsay, J. O., Sangalli, L. (2018)<>. Modelling spatial anisotropy via regression with partial differential regularization Journal of Multivariate Analysis, 167, 15-30.
