Arguments

i.data

Data frame of input data.

i.param.values

range of i.param values to test.

i.min.seasons

minimum number of seasons to perform the analysis, default=6.

i.graph

create a graph with the outputs (T/F).

i.graph.file

write the graph to a file.

i.graph.file.name

name of the output file.

i.graph.title

title of the graph.

i.graph.subtitle

subtitle of the graph.

i.output

output directory.

i.mem.info

include information about the package in the graph.

...

other paramaters to be used by memgoodness function.

Details

Optimize is an iterative process that calculates goodness indicators using different window parameters for the fixed criterium and compares all estimators in order to find the optimum window parameter.

The output shows the different window parameters and their respective indicators to decide which one is better for your data.

Value

roc.analysis returns a list. An object of class mem is a list containing at least the following components:
