Hi
If you want sensible response you need to ask sensible question and more
importantly provide working example or at least an example that produces
the error you want get rid of.
with
> test.functional.t(res.em1,res.em2,mint,maxt,se.m=0,points=300)
I get
Error in seq(mint, maxt, length.out = points) : object 'mint' not found
obviously because I do not have any mint on my computer.
Quite surprising is that your "t" (which I recommend you to call
differently as t is function transpose In base R) ends as a list. At the
first glance I do not see any reason for t to be a list from your code.
