Arguments

Outcome

The name of the column in data that stores the variable to be predicted by the model

covariates

A string of the type "1 + var1 + var2" that defines which variables will always be included in the models (as covariates)

pvalue

The maximum p-value, associated to the NeRI, allowed for a term in the model

VarFrequencyTable

An array with the ranked frequencies of the features, (e.g. the ranked.var value returned by the ForwardSelection.Model.Res function)

variableList

A data frame with two columns. The first one must have the names of the candidate variables and the other one the description of such variables

data

A data frame where all variables are stored in different columns

type

Fit type: Logistic ("LOGIT"), linear ("LM"), or Cox proportional hazards ("COX")

testType

Type of non-parametric test to be evaluated by the improvedResiduals function: Binomial test ("Binomial"), Wilcoxon rank-sum test ("Wilcox"), Student's t-test ("tStudent"), or F-test ("Ftest")

lastTopVariable

The maximum number of variables to be tested

timeOutcome

The name of the column in data that stores the time to event (needed only for a Cox proportional hazards regression model fitting)

maxTrainModelSize

Maximum number of terms that can be included in the model

p.thresholds

The p.value thresholds estimated in forward selection

Value

final.model

An object of class lm, glm, or coxph containing the final model

var.names

A vector with the names of the features that were included in the final model

formula

An object of class formula with the formula used to fit the final model

z.NeRI

A vector in which each element represents the z-score of the NeRI, associated to the testType, for each feature found in the final model
