[R] (list) object cannot be coerced to type 'double'

Dear all,

My script returns the following error:

Error in storage.mode(test) <- "logical" :   (list) object cannot be coerced to type 'double'

I've looked around and some suggest that it could be the way data have been imported. For my case, I don't think it is such. Rather I think it has to be the way I define x1 and in1. x1 is an object in which the values are written to which in turn serve as input.

The object, x, contain 32 files of 2x2 matrix.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Muhammad

    ifelse(x1[t] < 0, (
        ifelse(yy[t] < 0, x1[t] + xx[t+5], 0)), (
