## Arguments

e1, e2

or

x, y

either two hyperSpec objects or

one hyperSpec object and matrix of same size as x[[]] or

a vector which length equaling either the number of rows or the number of wavelengths of the hyperSpec object, or

a scalar (numeric of length 1).

## Value

hyperSpec object with the new spectra matrix. If the e2 is a hyperSpec object, its extra data columns will be dropped silently.

## Details

You can use these operators in different ways:

e1 + e2

+(e1, e2)

x

-x

The arithmetical operators +, -, *, /, ^, %%, %/%, and %*% work on the spectra matrix of the hyperSpec object. They have their usual meaning (see base::Arithmetic). The operators work also with one hyperSpec object and a numeric object or a matrix of the same size as the spectra matrix of the hyperSpec object.

With numeric vectors sweep() may be more explicit.

If you want to calculate on the extra data as well, use the data.frame hyperSpec@data directly or as.data.frame(x).

sweep() for calculations with a vector and the spectra matrix.

methods::S4groupGeneric for group generic methods.

base::Arithmetic for the base arithmetic functions.

Comparison for comparison operators, Math for mathematical group generic functions (Math and Math2 groups) working on hyperSpec objects.

base::matmult for matrix multiplications with %*%.
