lassoNPN: Estimating the regression coefficients in NPNGMs with lasso

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/lassoNPN.R

Description

The function "lassoNPN" computes the lasso estimates of the regression coefficents in NPNGMs for constructing the test statistic. The regression is based on a truncated (Winsorized) estimator for the transformation functions in NPNGMs.

Usage

1
lassoNPN(Data_mat)

Arguments

Data_mat

A n by p data matrix, where each row represents one observation

Details

The tuning parameter in the lasso regression is chosen as in Liu (2017). The truncation parameter in the Winsorized estimator is chosen as in Liu et al. (2009) to well balance the variance and bias.

Value

Estimated coefficients matrix by lasso

Note

Other estimators such as Dantzig selector or square-root lasso can also be used. See detailed discussion in Liu (2017) and Zhang (2017).
