The 'aggregate' function on an empty data.frame generate an error, however it should return according to the documentation an empty data.frame.

z<-data.frame(a=integer(0),b=numeric(0)) aggregate(z,by=z[1],FUN=sum)

In a more realistic situation 'z' is of the form z<-zz[cond,] where cond is a computed logical vector and zz is not empty data.frame.
