batch.pulsar(data, fun = huge::huge, fargs = list(),
  criterion = c("stars"), thresh = 0.1, subsample.ratio = NULL,
  lb.stars = FALSE, ub.stars = FALSE, rep.num = 20, seed = NULL,
  wkdir = getwd(), regdir = NA, init = "init", conffile = "",
  job.res = list(), cleanup = FALSE, refit = TRUE)

Arguments

data

A n*p matrix of data matrix input to solve for the p*p graphical model

fun

pass in a function that returns a list representing p*p sparse, undirected graphical models along the desired regularization path. The expected inputs to this function are: a data matrix input and a sequence of decreasing lambdas and must return a list or S3 object with a member named path. This should be a list of adjacency matrices for each value of lambda. See pulsar-function for more information.

fargs

arguments to argument fun. Must be a named list and requires at least one member lambda, a numeric vector with values for the penalty parameter.

criterion

A character vector of selection statistics. Multiple criteria can be supplied. Only StARS can be used to automatically select an optimal index for the lambda path. See details for additional statistics.

thresh

threshold (referred to as scalar β in StARS publication) for selection criterion. Only implemented for StARS. thresh=0.1 is recommended.

subsample.ratio

determine the size of the subsamples (referred to as b(n)/n). Default is 10*sqrt(n)/n for n > 144 or 0.8 otherwise. Should be strictly less than 1.

lb.stars

Should the lower bound be computed after the first N=2 subsamples (should result in considerable speedup and only implemented if stars is selected). If this option is selected, other summary metrics will only be applied to the smaller lambda path.

ub.stars

Should the upper bound be computed after the first N=2 subsamples (should result in considerable speedup and only implemented if stars is selected). If this option is selected, other summary metrics will only be applied to the smaller lambda path. This option is ignored if the lb.stars flag is FALSE.

rep.num

number of random subsamples N to take for graph re-estimation. Default is N=20, but more is recommended for non-StARS criteria or if using edge frequencies as confidence scores.

seed

A numeric seed to force predictable subsampling. Default is NULL. Use for testing purposes only.

wkdir

set the working directory if different than getwd

regdir

directory to store intermediate batch job files. Default will be a tempory directory

init

text string appended to basename of the regdir path to store the batch jobs for the initial StARS variability estimate (ignored if 'regdir' is NA)

conffile

path to or string that identifies a batchtools configuration file. This argument is passed directly to the name argument of the findConfFile function. See that help for detailed explanation.

job.res

named list of resources needed for each job (e.g. for PBS submission script). The format and members depends on configuration and template. See examples section for a Torque example

cleanup

Flag for removing batchtools registry files. Recommended FALSE unless you're sure intermediate data shouldn't be saved.

refit

Boolean flag to refit on the full dataset after pulsar is run. (see also refit)

Value

an S3 object of class batch.pulsar with a named member for each stability criterion/metric. Within each of these are:

If stars is included as a criterion then additional arguments include

reg: Registry object. See batchtools::makeRegistry

id: Identifier for mapping graph estimation function. See batchtools::batchMap

call: the original function call

## Not run: 
## Generate the data with huge:
library(huge)
set.seed(10010)
p <- 400 ; n <- 1200
dat   <- huge.generator(n, p, "hub", verbose=FALSE, v=.1, u=.3)
lams  <- getLamPath(.2, .01, len=40)
hugeargs  <- list(lambda=lams, verbose=FALSE)

## Run batch.pulsar using snow on 5 cores, and show progress.
options(mc.cores=5)
options(batchtools.progress=TRUE, batchtools.verbose=FALSE)
out <- batch.pulsar(dat$data, fun=huge::huge, fargs=hugeargs,
                 rep.num=20, criterion='stars', conffile='snow')
## Run batch.pulsar on a Torque cluster
## Give each job 1gb of memory and a limit of 30 minutes
resources <- list(mem="1GB", nodes="1", walltime="00:30:00")
out.p <- batch.pulsar(dat$data, fun=huge::huge, fargs=hugeargs,
                 rep.num=100, criterion=c('stars', 'gcd'), conffile='torque'
                 job.res=resources, regdir=file.path(getwd(), "testtorq"))
plot(out.p)
## take a look at the default torque config and template files we just used
file.show(findConfFile('torque'))
file.show(findTemplateFile('simpletorque'))

## End(Not run)
