# simInfl: Simulates significance reversals and calculates their... In reverseR: Linear Regression Stability to Significance Reversal

## Description

This function simulates linear regressions and stores the parameters and influence measures of all simulations that resulted in LOO significance reversal, developed for research purposes.

## Usage

 1 simInfl(x = 1:10, slope = 0.02, intercept = 1, error = 0.05, nrev = 1000, ...) 

## Arguments

 x the x values to be supplied to lmExact. slope the slope β_1 to be supplied to lmExact. intercept the intercept β_0 to be supplied to lmExact. error the \varepsilon value to be supplied to lmExact. nrev the number of desired significance reversals. ... other parameters to lmExact and lmInfl.

## Details

Loops over an undefined number of EXACT regressions (lmExact) with incrementing random seeds, stores all models and in case of significance reversal, parameters and influence measures (lmInfl). The simulation terminates when nrev reversals are counted.

## Value

A list with the following two items:

 models the linear models of all reversals. mat the stored matrix with the resulting parameters and influence measures for all nrev reversals.
