bigQF-package: Quadratic Forms in Large Matrices

Description Details Author(s) References


A computationally-efficient leading-eigenvalue approximation to tail probabilities and quantiles of large quadratic forms, in particular for the Sequence Kernel Association Test (SKAT) used in genomics. Also provides stochastic singular value decomposition for dense or sparse matrices.

Index: This package was not yet installed at build time.
This package computes tail probabilities for large quadratic forms, with the motivation being the SKAT test used in DNA sequence association studies. The main function is pQF, but also see SKAT.matrixfree for fast use with sparse genotypes.
