Utility functions for constructing tensor product smooths

Share:

Description

Produce model matrices or penalty matrices for a tensor product smooth from the model matrices or penalty matrices for the marginal bases of the smooth.

Usage

1

Arguments

X

a list of model matrices for the marginal bases of a smooth

Details

If X[[1]], X[[2]] ... X[[m]] are the model matrices of the marginal bases of a tensor product smooth then the ith row of the model matrix for the whole tensor product smooth is given by X[[1]][i,]%x%X[[2]][i,]%x% ... X[[m]][i,], where %x% is the Kronecker product. Of course the routine operates column-wise, not row-wise!

Value

Either a single model matrix for a tensor product smooth, or a list of penalty terms for a tensor product smooth.
