exHe: Small Dataset Example of He

Description Usage Format Details Source See Also Examples

Description

The exHe data frame has 10 rows and 2 columns. It is an example for which smooth.spline cannot be used.

Usage

1

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

x

only values 0, 1, and 2.

y

10 randomly generated values

Details

Xuming He wrote about this JUST FOR FUN:
I was testing COBS using the following "data". For comparison, I tried smooth.spline in S+. I never got an answer back! No warning messages either. The point is that even the well-tested algorithm like smooth.spline could leave you puzzled.

To tell you the truth, the response values here were generated by white noise. An ideal fitted curve would be a flat line. See for yourself what COBS would do in this case.
