Description

gdf returns to estimate of the generalized degrees-of-freedom.

Usage

1
gdf(object)

Arguments

object

fitted dglars object.

Details

For a general nonlinear modelling procedure, a rigorous definition of degrees-of-freedom is obtained using the covariance penalty theory (Efron, 2004). This theory was used in Augugliaro et al. (2013) to define a measure of model complexity for the dgLARS method, called “generalized degrees-of-freedom”. The gdf function implements the estimator proposed in Augugliaro et al. (2013).

Value

gdf returns a vector of length np with the generalized degrees-of-freedom.
