In order to fit a piece-wise constant curve to each of the signal sequences, we try to minimize the following objective function

*loss function
+ lambda1 * lasso penalty + lambda2 * fused lasso penalty + lambda3 * group fused lasso penalty
*

The optimal solution is approached via an iteration based algorithm called Majorization-Minimization (MM) algorithm developed by Kenneth Lange (2004). The choices of tuning parameters of the model are suggested as follows:

*λ_{1,i} = c_1 σ_i*

*λ_{2,i} = ρ(p) c_2 σ_i √{\log N}*

*λ_{3,i} = [1-ρ(p)] c_3 σ_i √{pM} √{\log N}*

where *σ_i* is signal noise level of each sequence, *M* is the number of sequences, *N* is the number of markers and *c_1*, *c_2*, *c_3*, *ρ*, and *p* are properly chosen contants, which are absorbed in *ρ_1*, *ρ_2*, and *ρ_3* respectively. More details are referred to Zhang et al. (2012).

All outputs are collected in a list:

`obj` |
A vector of values of objective function at each MM iteration. |

`Beta` |
A matrix of the same dimension as |

`Y`

and `Delta`

must be of the class matrix. If only one signal sequence is to be analyzed, they should be also coerced to matrix with only one column.
