Description

The function evaluates the smoothing matrix H, the matrices Q and S and their associated coefficients c and s. This function is not intended to be used directly.

Usage

1
dssmoother(X,Y=NULL,lambda,m,s)

Arguments

X

Matrix of explanatory variables, size n,p.

Y

Vector of response variable. If null, only the smoothing matrix is returned.

lambda

The smoothness coefficient lambda for thin plate splines of order m.

m

The order of derivatives for the penalty (for thin plate splines it is the order). This integer m must verify 2m+2s/d>1, where d is the number of explanatory variables.

s

The power of weighting function. For thin plate splines s is equal to 0. This real must be strictly smaller than d/2 (where d is the number of explanatory variables) and must verify 2m+2s/d. To get pseudo-cubic splines, choose m=2 and s=(d-1)/2 (See Duchon, 1977).

Details

see the reference for detailed explanation of Q (the semi kernel or radial basis) and S (the polynomial null space).

Value

Returns a list containing the smoothing matrix H, and two matrices denoted Sgu (for null space) and Qgu.
