# ITPlmbspline: Interval Testing Procedure for testing Functional-on-Scalar... In alessiapini/fdatest: Interval Wise Testing for Functional Data

## Description

The function is used to fit and test functional linear models. It can be used to carry out regression, and analysis of variance. It implements the Interval Testing Procedure for testing the significance of the effects of scalar covariates on a functional population evaluated on a uniform grid. Data are represented by means of the B-spline basis and the significance of each basis coefficient is tested with an interval-wise control of the Family Wise Error Rate. The default parameters of the basis expansion lead to the piece-wise interpolating function.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3``` ```ITPlmbspline(formula, order = 2, nknots = dim(model.response(model.frame(formula))), B = 10000, method = "residuals") ```

## Arguments

 `formula` An object of class "`formula`" (or one that can be coerced to that class): a symbolic description of the model to be fitted. `order` Order of the B-spline basis expansion. The default is `order=2`. `nknots` Number of knots of the B-spline basis expansion. The default is `nknots=dim(data1)`. `B` The number of iterations of the MC algorithm to evaluate the p-values of the permutation tests. The defualt is `B=1000`. `method` Permutation method used to calculate the p-value of permutation tests. Choose "`residuals`" for the permutations of residuals under the reduced model, according to the Freedman and Lane scheme, and "`responses`" for the permutation of the responses, according to the Manly scheme.

## Value

`ITPlmbspline` returns an object of `class` "`ITPlm`". The function `summary` is used to obtain and print a summary of the results. An object of class "`ITPlm`" is a list containing at least the following components:

 `call` The matched call. `design.matrix` The design matrix of the functional-on-scalar linear model. `basis` String vector indicating the basis used for the first phase of the algorithm. In this case equal to `"B-spline"`. `coeff` Matrix of dimensions `c(n,p)` of the `p` coefficients of the B-spline basis expansion. Rows are associated to units and columns to the basis index. `coeff.regr` Matrix of dimensions `c(L+1,p)` of the `p` coefficients of the B-spline basis expansion of the intercept (first row) and the `L` effects of the covariates specified in `formula`. Columns are associated to the basis index. `pval.F` Unadjusted p-values of the functional F-test for each basis coefficient. `pval.matrix.F` Matrix of dimensions `c(p,p)` of the p-values of the multivariate F-tests. The element `(i,j)` of matrix `pval.matrix` contains the p-value of the joint NPC test of the components `(j,j+1,...,j+(p-i))`. `adjusted.pval.F` Adjusted p-values of the functional F-test for each basis coefficient. `pval.t` Unadjusted p-values of the functional t-tests for each partial regression coefficient including the intercept (rows) and each basis coefficient (columns). `pval.matrix.t` Array of dimensions `c(L+1,p,p)` of the p-values of the multivariate t-tests. The element `(l,i,j)` of array `pval.matrix` contains the p-value of the joint NPC test on covariate `l` of the components `(j,j+1,...,j+(p-i))`. `adjusted.pval.t` adjusted p-values of the functional t-tests for each partial regression coefficient including the intercept (rows) and each basis coefficient (columns). `data.eval` Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the functional data obtained through the basis expansion. `coeff.regr.eval` Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the functional regression coefficients. `fitted.eval` Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the fitted values of the functional regression. `residuals.eval` Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the residuals of the functional regression. `R2.eval` Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the functional R-squared of the regression. `heatmap.matrix.F` Heatmap matrix of p-values of functional F-test (used only for plots). `heatmap.matrix.t` Heatmap matrix of p-values of functional t-tests (used only for plots).
