Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This package presents a method combining Hierarchical Clustering and Group-lasso. Usually, a single partition of the covariates is used in the group-lasso. Here, we provides several partition from the hierarchical tree.

A post-treatment method based on statistical test (with FWER and FDR control) for selecting the regularization parameter and the optimal group for this value is provided. This method can be applied for the classical group-lasso and our method.

Details

The function MLGL performs the hierarchical clustering and the group-lasso. The post-treatment method can be performed with hierarchicalFWER and selFWER functions. The whole process can be run with the fullProcess function.
