tong_mean_shrinkage: Tong et al. (2012)'s Lindley-type Shrunken Mean Estimator

Description Usage Arguments Value References

Description

An implementation of the Lindley-type shrunken mean estimator utilized in shrinkage-mean-based diagonal linear discriminant analysis (SmDLDA).

Usage

1

Arguments

x

a matrix with n rows and p columns.

r_opt

the shrinkage coefficient. If NULL (default), we calculate the shrinkage coefficient with the formula given just above Equation 5 on page 533 and denoted by \hat{r}_{opt}. We allow the user to specify an alternative value to investigate better approximations.

Value

vector of length p with the shrunken mean estimator
