Description Usage Arguments Value
Certain interactions between factor variables and splines should be dropped to avoid collinearity. Albeit collinearity in the MTR specification will not impact the bounds, it can substantially impact how costly it is to carry out the estimation. What this function does is map each spline to a temporary variable. A design matrix is then constructed using these temporary variables in place the splines. If an interaction involving one of the temporary variables is dropped, then one knows to also drop the corresponding interaction with the spline. Note that only interaction terms need to be omitted, so one does not need to worry about the formula contained in removeSplines$formula.
1  interactSplines(splinesobj, m0, m1, data, uname)

splinesobj 
list, consists of two elelments. The first is

m0 
onesided formula for the marginal treatment response function for the control group. This should be the full MTR specificaiton (i.e. not the specification after removing the splines). 
m1 
onesided formula for the marginal treatment response function for the treated group. This should be the full MTR specificaiton (i.e. not the specification after removing the splines). 
data 
data.frame, restricted to complete observations. 
uname 
string, name of the unobserved variable.
