Extract Gradients

Description

gradients is a generic function which extracts gradients from objects.

Usage

gradients(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'condensity'
gradients(x, errors = FALSE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'condistribution'
gradients(x, errors = FALSE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'npregression'
gradients(x, errors = FALSE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'qregression'
gradients(x, errors = FALSE, ...)

## S3 method for class 'singleindex'
gradients(x, errors = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

an object for which the extraction of gradients is meaningful.

...

other arguments.

errors

a logical value specifying whether or not standard errors of gradients are desired. Defaults to FALSE.

Details

This function provides a generic interface for extraction of gradients from objects.

Value

Gradients extracted from the model object x.

Note

This method currently only supports objects from the np library.
