Arguments

smooth

currently an object that inherits from class mgcv.smooth.

...

arguments assed to other methods

model

a fitted model; currently only mgcv::gam() and mgcv::bam() models are suported.

n

numeric; the number of points over the range of the covariate at which to evaluate the smooth.

n_3d, n_4d

numeric; the number of points over the range of last covariate in a 3D or 4D smooth. The default is NULL which achieves the standard behaviour of using n points over the range of all covariate, resulting in n^d evaluation points, where d is the dimension of the smooth. For d > 2 this can result in very many evaluation points and slow performance. For smooths of d > 4, the value of n_4d will be used for all dimensions > 4, unless this is NULL, in which case the default behaviour (using n for all dimensions) will be observed.

data

an optional data frame of values to evaluate smooth at.

unconditional

logical; should confidence intervals include the uncertainty due to smoothness selection? If TRUE, the corrected Bayesian covariance matrix will be used.

overall_uncertainty

logical; should the uncertainty in the model constant term be included in the standard error of the evaluate values of the smooth?

dist

numeric; if greater than 0, this is used to determine when a location is too far from data to be plotted when plotting 2-D smooths. The data are scaled into the unit square before deciding what to exclude, and dist is a distance within the unit square. See mgcv::exclude.too.far() for further details.
