Multinomial regression

Description

multinom_reg() defines a model that uses linear predictors to predict multiclass data using the multinomial distribution. This function can fit classification models.

Usage

multinom_reg(
  mode = "classification",
  engine = "nnet",
  penalty = NULL,
  mixture = NULL
)

Arguments

mode

A single character string for the type of model. The only possible value for this model is "classification".

engine

A single character string specifying what computational engine to use for fitting. Possible engines are listed below. The default for this model is "nnet".

penalty

A non-negative number representing the total amount of regularization (specific engines only). For keras models, this corresponds to purely L2 regularization (aka weight decay) while the other models can be a combination of L1 and L2 (depending on the value of mixture).

mixture

A number between zero and one (inclusive) giving the proportion of L1 regularization (i.e. lasso) in the model.

  • mixture = 1 specifies a pure lasso model,

  • mixture = 0 specifies a ridge regression model, and

  • 0 < mixture < 1 specifies an elastic net model, interpolating lasso and ridge.

Available for specific engines only.

Details

This function only defines what type of model is being fit. Once an engine is specified, the method to fit the model is also defined. See set_engine() for more on setting the engine, including how to set engine arguments.

The model is not trained or fit until the fit() function is used with the data.

This model fits a classification model for multiclass outcomes; for binary outcomes, see logistic_reg().
