Arguments

M

a micro_array object.

...

Optional arguments:

M

Data

tour.max=30

tour.max + 1 = maximal number of steps.

g=function(x)1/x

After each step, the new solution is choosen as (the old solution + g(x) * the new solution)/(1+g(x)) where x is the number of steps.

conv=0.001

Convergence criterion.

cv.subjects=TRUE

Subjectwise cross validation: should the cross validation be done by removing the subject one by one?

nb.folds=NULL

Relevant only if no subjectwise cross validation (i.e. cv.subjects=FALSE). The number of folds in cross validation.

eps=10^-5

Threshold for rounding coefficients to 0 (i.e. machine zero).

type.inf="iterative"

"iterative" or "noniterative" : should the algorithm be computed iteratively or only for one step? For highly homogeneous clusters, the "noniterative" option is suffisant.

Fshape=NULL

Shape of the F matrix.

Finit=NULL

Init values of the F matrix.

Omega=NULL

Init values for the Omega matrix.

fitfun="LASSO"

Function to infer the Omega matrix at each step.

use.Gram=TRUE

Optional parameter for the lasso in the 'lars' package.

error.stabsel=0.05

Optional parameter for the stability selection algorithm in the 'c060' package.

pi_thr.stabsel=0.6

Optional parameter for the stability selection algorithm in the 'c060' package.

priors=NULL

A priori weights for the links between the actors. 0 means that an actor is always included in the predictive model, 1 is a neutral weighting and +infinity that the actor is never used in the model. For a given predictive model, the weighting vector is normalized so that its sum is equal to the number of predictors in the model.

mc.cores=getOption("mc.cores", 2L)

Number of cores.

intercept.stabpath=TRUE

Use intercept in stability selection models?

steps.seq=.95

Optional parameter for the SelectBoost algorithm in the 'SelectBoost' package.

limselect=.95

Optional parameter for the SelectBoost algorithm in the 'SelectBoost' package.

use.parallel=TRUE

Use parallel computing?

verbose=TRUE

Info on the completion of the fitting process

show.error.messages=FALSE

Should the error messages of the Omega estimating function be returned?

Details

The fitting built-in fitting functions ('fitfun') provided with the 'Patterns' package are :

LASSO

from the 'lars' package (default value)

LASSO2

from the 'glmnet' package

SPLS

from the 'spls' package

ELASTICNET

from the 'elasticnet' package

stability.c060

from the 'c060' package implementation of stability selection

stability.c060.weighted

a new weighted version of the 'c060' package implementation of stability selection

robust

lasso from the 'lars' package with light random Gaussian noise added to the explanatory variables

selectboost.weighted

a new weighted version of the 'selectboost' package implementation of the selectboost algorithm to look for the more stable links against resampling that takes into account the correlated structure of the predictors. If no weights are provided, equal weigths are for all the variables (=non weighted case).

The weights are viewed as a penalty factors in the penalized regression model: it is a number that multiplies the lambda value in the minimization problem to allow differential shrinkage, [Friedman et al. 2010](https://web.stanford.edu/~hastie/Papers/glmnet.pdf), equation 1 page 3. If equal to 0, it implies no shrinkage, and that variable is always included in the model. Default is 1 for all variables. Infinity means that the variable is excluded from the model. Note that the weights are rescaled to sum to the number of variables.

Value

A network object.
