## Description

This loss can be used for regression with y \in \mathrm{R}.

## Format

S4 object.

## Details

Loss Function:

L(y, f(x)) = \frac{1}{2}( y - f(x))^2

\frac{δ}{δ f(x)}\ L(y, f(x)) = f(x) - y

Initialization:

\hat{f}^{[0]}(x) = \mathrm{arg~min}{c\in\mathrm{R}}{\mathrm{arg~min}}\ \frac{1}{n}∑\limits_{i=1}^n L≤ft(y^{(i)}, c\right) = \bar{y}

## Usage

 1 2 LossQuadratic$new() LossQuadratic$new(offset) 

## Arguments

offset [numeric(1)]

Numerical value which can be used to set a custom offset. If so, this value is returned instead of the loss optimal initialization.

## Details

This class is a wrapper around the pure C++ implementation. To see the functionality of the C++ class visit https://schalkdaniel.github.io/compboost/cpp_man/html/classloss_1_1_quadratic_loss.html.

## Examples

 1 2 3 # Create new loss object: quadratic.loss = LossQuadratic\$new() quadratic.loss
