gammaregs: Many Gamma regressions In Rfast2: A Collection of Efficient and Extremely Fast R Functions II

Description

Many Gamma regressions.

Usage

 `1` ```gammaregs(y, x, tol = 1e-07, logged = FALSE, parallel = FALSE, maxiters = 100) ```

Arguments

 `y` The dependent variable, a numerical variable with non negative numbers for the Gamma and inverse Gaussian regressions. For the Gaussian with a log-link zero values are allowed. `x` A matrix with the indendent variables. `tol` The tolerance value to terminate the Newton-Raphson algorithm. `logged` A boolean variable; it will return the logarithm of the pvalue if set to TRUE. `parallel` Do you want this to be executed in parallel or not. The parallel takes place in C++, therefore you do not have the option to set the number of cores. `maxiters` The maximum number of iterations that can take place in each regression.

Details

Many simple Gamma regressions with a log-link are fitted.

Value

A matrix with the test statistic values and their relevant (logged) p-values.
