`statr`

is a personal R package that I have created for organizational/convenience purposes. This project is purely experimental!!! A (possibly incomplete) list of functions contained in the package can be found below:

`tidy()`

tidy's R package code and updates documentation`CVsplit()`

splits data objects into training and testing sets`data_gen()`

generates data for linear regression settings`dense()`

generates dense matrices`denseQR()`

generates dense matrices via spectral decomposition`tridiag()`

generates tri-diagonal matrices`derivative()`

approximates the derivative for a given function`diagnostic()`

creates diagnostic plots using ggplot (residual and QQ)`dsearch()`

is a dichotomous search algorithm for minimizing a univariate function`bsearch()`

is a bi-section search algorithm for minimizing a univariate function`LASSO()`

calculates lasso regression coefficient with optimal tuning`RIDGE()`

calculates ridge regression coefficient with optimal tuning`scatter()`

creates a scatterplot using ggplot

`diagnostic()`

Similar to `scatter`

, `diagnostic`

creates diagnostic plots (residual and QQ) in ggplot:

#create diagnostic plots cars %>% diagnostic(speed, dist)

`dsearch()`

`dsearch`

is a dichotomous search algorithm that will minimize *univariate strictly pseudoconvex* functions. Let us consider the quadratic function centered at 0:

#quadratic x = seq(-5, 5, 0.1) y = x^2 data = data.frame(x, y) ggplot(data) + geom_line(mapping = aes(x, y, color = "red"), show.legend = FALSE) + ggtitle("y = x^2")

The minimum of this function clearly occurs at $x = 0$ but we will confirm that with the `dsearch`

function.

#first we define the quadratic function g = function(x){x^2} #dsearch dsearch(g, -10, 10)

We can see that `dsearch`

confirms the minimum occurs at the suggested point.

`bsearch()`

`bsearch`

is a bisection search algorithm that works very similarly to `dsearch`

. The difference being that `bsearch`

will find the *root* of the function -- that is, when the function is equal to zero. Therefore, if we want to again minimize the quadratic function, we need to input the *derivative* of the quadratic function to find its minimum (recall that local minima and maxima occur when the derivative/gradient is equal to zero).

#derivative of quadratic x = seq(-5, 5, 0.1) dy = 2*x data = data.frame(x, dy) ggplot(data) + geom_line(mapping = aes(x, dy, color = "red"), show.legend = FALSE) + ggtitle("dy = 2x")

#define the derivative of quadratic dg = function(x){2*x} #bsearch bsearch(dg, -10, 10)

We can see that `bsearch`

confirms the minimum occurs at $x = 0$.

`scatter()`

This function simply streamlines the process of creating a scatterplot with ggplot:

#create scatterplot cars %>% scatter(speed, dist)
