You've given us just a fragment of a question here -- there's
not enough context to work with. We don't know where the
variable 'W' came from, although presumably from a Ripley's
K calculation ... ?
Please read http://tinyurl.com/reproducible-000 , and give us more
information (e.g. the link (URL) to the explanation you say you found
on the internet).
I would also suggest that this question might be better suited
for the r-sig-ecology at r-project.org mailing list ...
