# Morse Smale Complex Linear Regression

### Description

Piecewise linear regression on the decomposition of the domain based on the
partion induced by the Morse-Smale complex. For `msc.elnet`

an elastic net is
fitted insetad of a simple lienar regression.

For prediction the linear model are either avergaed based on weighting the
contributions from each partition for a predicting point or predicted based on
the linear model corresponding to the highest partition probability. The
weights for each partition are computed depending on the underlying Morse-Smale
complex type (see `msc.nn`

). The functions can be called with
`msc.nn`

without predictive capacities, then prediction of unseen
data is not supported.

### Usage

1 2 |

### Arguments

`ms` |
A Morse-Smale complex object, see |

.

`nfold` |
Number of folds for crossvlaidation, used for selecting an appropriate persitence level if the underlying Morse-Smale complex objects has multiple levels. |

`modelSelect` |
Do a forward stepwise model selection for each linear model (for each parttion ther eis on linear model) |

`blend` |
Use blending for model preidtcion. FALSE results in pecewise linear model. |

`verbose` |
Print model fitting information |

### Value

An object of class `c("msc.lm")`

or `c("msc.elnet")`

, that can be used for prediction with
`predict`

.

The object `c("msc.lm")`

has the following components:

`ms` |
The Morse-Smale complex, see |

`lms` |
The linear models and crossvalidation results for each level in ms. |

`blend` |
Use blending for model prediction. |

The object `c("msc.elnet")`

has the following components:

`ms` |
The Morse-Smale complex, see |

`elnet` |
The elastic net models and crossvalidation results for each level in ms. |
