Rubberband Baseline Estimation

## Usage

```
baseline_rubberband(x, y, ...)
# S4 method for numeric,numeric
baseline_rubberband(x, y, noise = 0, spline = TRUE, ...)
# S4 method for ANY,missing
baseline_rubberband(x, noise = 0, spline = TRUE, ...)
```

## Arguments

- x, y
A

`numeric`

vector. If`y`

is missing, an attempt is made to interpret`x`

in a suitable way (see`grDevices::xy.coords()`

).- ...
Extra arguments to be passed to

`stats::smooth.spline()`

.- noise
A length-one

`numeric`

vector giving the noise level. Only used if`method`

is "`rubberband`

".- spline
A

`logical`

scalar: should spline interpolation through the support points be used instead of linear interpolation? Only used if`method`

is "`rubberband`

".

## Value

Returns a `list`

with two components `x`

and `y`

.

## Details

A convex envelope of the spectrum is determined and the baseline is estimated as the part of the convex envelope lying below the spectrum. Note that the rubber band does not enter the concave regions (if any) of the spectrum.

## Examples

```
## gamma-ray spectrometry
data("BEGe")
## Subset from 2.75 to 200 keV
BEGe <- signal_select(BEGe, from = 3, to = 200)
## Plot spectrum
plot(BEGe, type = "l", xlab = "Energy (keV)", ylab = "Count")
## Rubberband baseline
baseline <- baseline_rubberband(BEGe)
plot(BEGe, type = "l", xlab = "Energy (keV)", ylab = "Count")
lines(baseline, type = "l", col = "red")
```
