Description

Performs (n-fold) cross-validation of the lasso (via cv.glmnet) and determines the prediction optimal set of parameters.

Usage

lasso.cv(x, y,
         nfolds = 10,
         grouped = nrow(x) > 3*nfolds,
         ...)

Arguments

x

numeric design matrix (without intercept) of dimension n * p.

y

response vector of length n.

nfolds

the number of folds to be used in the cross-validation

grouped

corresponds to the grouped argument to cv.glmnet. This has a smart default such that glmnet does not give a warning about too small sample size.

...

further arguments to be passed to cv.glmnet.

Details

The function basically only calls cv.glmnet, see source code.

Value

Vector of selected predictors.
