View source: R/erboost.R

Description

Helper functions for computing the relative influence of each variable in the erboost object.

Usage

1
2
3
relative.influence(object, n.trees)
permutation.test.erboost(object, n.trees)
erboost.loss(y,f,w,offset,dist,baseline)

Arguments

object

a erboost object created from an initial call to erboost.

n.trees

the number of trees to use for computations.

y,f,w,offset,dist,baseline

For erboost.loss: These components are the outcome, predicted value, observation weight, offset, distribution, and comparison loss function, respectively.

Details

This is not intended for end-user use. These functions offer the different methods for computing the relative influence in summary.erboost. erboost.loss is a helper function for permutation.test.erboost.

Value

Returns an unprocessed vector of estimated relative influences.
