RFCCA: A package for computing canonical correlations depending on subject-related covariates with random forests


RFCCA is a random forest method for estimating the canonical correlations between two sets of variables depending on the subject-related covariates. The trees are built with a splitting rule specifically designed to partition the data to maximize the canonical correlation heterogeneity between child nodes. RFCCA uses 'randomForestSRC' package (Ishwaran and Kogalur, 2020) by freezing at the version 2.9.3. The custom splitting rule feature is utilised to apply the proposed splitting rule. The method is described in Alakus et al. (2021).
