Importance statistics based on regularized logistic regression


Fit the lasso path and computes the difference statistic

W_j = Z_j - \tilde{Z}_j

where Z_j and \tilde{Z}_j are the maximum values of the regularization parameter λ at which the jth variable and its knockoff enter the penalized logistic regression model, respectively.


stat.lasso_lambdadiff_bin(X, X_k, y, ...)



n-by-p matrix of original variables.


n-by-p matrix of knockoff variables.


vector of length n, containing the response variables. It should be either a factor with two levels, or a two-column matrix of counts or proportions (the second column is treated as the target class; for a factor, the last level in alphabetical order is the target class). If y is presented as a vector, it will be coerced into a factor.


additional arguments specific to glmnet (see Details).


This function uses glmnet to compute the lasso path on a fine grid of λ's.

The nlambda parameter can be used to control the granularity of the grid of λ's. The default value of nlambda is 500.

This function is a wrapper around the more general stat.glmnet_lambdadiff.

For a complete list of the available additional arguments, see glmnet or lars.


A vector of statistics W of length p.

# Advanced usage with custom arguments
