lrsmoother: Evaluate the lowrank spline

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also

Description

The function evaluates all the features needed for a lowrank spline smoothing. This function is not intended to be used directly.

Usage

1
lrsmoother(x,bs,listvarx,lambda,m,s,rank)

Arguments

x

Matrix of explanatory variables, size n,p.

bs

The type rank of lowrank splines: tps or ds.

listvarx

The vector of the names of explanatory variables

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).

rank

The rank of lowrank splines.

Details

see the reference for detailed explanation of the matrix matrix R^-1U (see reference) and smoothCon for the definition of smoothobject

Value

Returns a list containing the smoothing matrix eigenvectors and eigenvalues vectors and values, and one matrix denoted Rm1U and one smoothobject smoothobject.
