# A Reference Class for Local Polynomial Regression with covafill.

### Description

A Reference Class for Local Polynomial Regression with covafill.

### Fields

`ptr`

External pointer to the covafill C++ object

### Methods

`getBandwith()`

Get the bandwith.

`getDegree()`

Get the polynomial degree.

`getDim()`

Get the dimension of the coordinates.

`initialize(coord, obs, h = 1, p = 2L, ...)`

Method to initialize the covafill. coord is a matrix of coordinates, obs is a vector of corresponding observations, h is a vector of bandwiths, and p is the polynomial degree.

`predict(coord, se.fit = FALSE)`

Predict function value and derivatives with local polynomial regression at coord. If se.fit=TRUE a list is returned with estimates and their standard deviations.

`residuals(excludeRadius)`

Get 'leave-neighborhood-out' residuals, i.e. local polynomial regression predictions excluding points within excludeRadius subtracted from the observation.

`setBandwith(h)`

Set the bandwith to h.

cf <- covafill(coord = x,obs = y,h = 0.5,p = 3L)
cf$getDim()
cf$getDegree()
cf$getBandwith()
cf$setBandwith(1.0)
cf$getBandwith()
x0 <- seq(-1,1,0.1)
y0 <- cf$predict(x0)
par(mfrow=c(3,1))
plot(x0,y0[,1], main = "Function")
lines(x0,fn(x0))
plot(x0, y0[,2], main = "First derivative")
lines(x0, 4 * x0 ^ 3 - 2 * x0)
plot(x0, y0[,3], main = "Second derivative")
lines(x0, 3 * 4 * x0 ^ 2 - 2)
