At the moment the following model terms are implemented, for which additional controlling parameters may be specified:
"rw2": Zero degree P-splines: Defines a zero degree P-spline with first or
second order difference penalty. A zero degree P-spline typically
estimates for every distinct covariate value in the dataset a separate
parameter. Usually there is no reason to prefer zero degree P-splines
over higher order P-splines. An exception are ordinal covariates or
continuous covariates with only a small number of different values.
For ordinal covariates higher order P-splines are not meaningful while
zero degree P-splines might be an alternative to modeling nonlinear
relationships via a dummy approach with completely unrestricted
"season": Seasonal effect of a time scale.
"psplinerw2": P-spline with first or second order
"pspline2dimrw1": Defines a two-dimensional P-spline based on the tensor
product of one-dimensional P-splines with a two-dimensional first order random walk
penalty for the parameters of the spline.
"kriging": Kriging with stationary Gaussian random fields.
"geokriging": Geokriging with stationary Gaussian random fields: Estimation
is based on the centroids of a map object provided in
boundary format (see function
shp2bnd) as an additional
map within function
sx, or supplied within argument
xt when using function
xt = list(map = MapBnd).
"geospline": Geosplines based on two-dimensional P-splines with a
two-dimensional first order random walk penalty for the parameters of the spline.
Estimation is based on the coordinates of the centroids of the regions
of a map object provided in boundary format (see function
shp2bnd) as an additional argument named
map (see above).
"spatial": Markov random fields: Defines a Markov random field prior for a
spatial covariate, where geographical information is provided by a map object in
boundary or graph file format (see function
shp2bnd), as an additional argument named
map (see above).
"baseline": Nonlinear baseline effect in hazard regression or multi-state
models: Defines a P-spline with second order random walk penalty for the parameters of
the spline for the log-baseline effect log(λ(time)).
"factor": Special BayesX specifier for factors, especially meaningful if
method = "STEP", since the factor term is then treated as a full term,
which is either included or removed from the model.
"nigmix": Shrinkage of fixed effects: defines a
shrinkage-prior for the corresponding parameters
γ_j, j = 1, …, q, q ≥q 1 of the
linear effects x_1, …, x_q. There are three
priors possible: ridge-, lasso- and Normal Mixture
of inverse Gamma prior.
"re": Gaussian i.i.d. Random effects of a unit or cluster identification covariate.
