`towards.Rd`

Report the directions of each `agents`

towards each corresponding `agents2`

.

towards(agents, agents2, world, torus = FALSE) # S4 method for matrix,matrix towards(agents, agents2, world, torus = FALSE)

agents | Matrix (ncol = 2) with the first column "pxcor" and the second column "pycor" representing the patches coordinates, or AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents. |
---|---|

agents2 | Matrix (ncol = 2) with the first column "pxcor" and the second column "pycor" representing the patches coordinates, or AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents, or Matrix (ncol = 2) with the first column "x and the second column "y" representing locations coordinates. |

world | WorldMatrix or worldArray object. |

torus | Logical to determine if the |

Numeric. Vector of angles in degrees of length equal to the largest
number of agents/locations between `agents`

and `agents2`

.

`agents`

and `agents2`

must have the same number of agents/locations
or if different, one of them must have only one agent/location. If
`agents`

and `agents2`

have the same number of agents/locations,
the directions are calculated for each pair `agents[i]`

and `agents2[i]`

and not for each `agents`

towards every single `agents2`

.

If `torus = FALSE`

, `world`

does not need to be provided.

If `torus = TRUE`

and the distance from one `agents`

to
its corresponding `agents2`

is smaller around the
sides of the `world`

than across it, then the direction to `agents2`

going around the sides of the `world`

is returned.

The direction from a patch to its location returns 0; the direction from a turtle to its location returns the turtle's heading.
