glassoFast-package: glassoFast: a Fast Graphical LASSO

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


This package propose a fast implementation of the graphical LASSO of Friedman et al. 2008 based on the algorithm (FORTRAN subroutine) of Sustik and Calderhead (2012). This algorithm also avoid non-termination issues observed for the "glasso" function of the R package glasso.
