Description Details Author(s) Examples

Description

Simultaneous feature selection and parameter estimation for classification. Suitable for high dimensional multiclass classification with many classes. The algorithm computes the sparse group lasso penalized maximum likelihood estimate. Use of parallel computing for cross validation and subsampling is supported through the foreach and doParallel packages. Development version is on GitHub, please report package issues on GitHub.

Details

For a classification problem with K classes and p features (covariates) dived into m groups. The multinomial logistic regression with sparse group lasso penalty estimator is a sequence of minimizers (one for each lambda given in the lambda argument) of

\hat R(β) + λ ≤ft( (1-α) ∑_{J=1}^m γ_J \|β^{(J)}\|_2 + α ∑_{i=1}^{n} ξ_i |β_i| \right)

where \hat R is the weighted empirical log-likelihood risk of the multinomial regression model. The vector β^{(J)} denotes the parameters associated with the J'th group of features (default is one covariate per group, hence the default dimension of β^{(J)} is K). The group weights γ \in [0,∞)^m and parameter weights ξ \in [0,∞)^n may be explicitly specified.
