Make predictions based on a "cv.compCL" object.


This function makes prediction based on a cross-validated compCL model, using the stored object.


## S3 method for class 'cv.compCL'
predict(object, Znew, Zcnew = NULL, s = c("lam.min", "lam.1se" ),
        trim = FALSE, ...)



fitted "cv.compCL" model.


z matrix as in compCL with new compositional data or categorical data.


Zc matrix as in compCL with new data for other covariates. Default is NULL


specify the lam at which prediction(s) is requested.

  • s = "lam.min" (default), value of lam that obtains the minimun value of cross-validation error.

  • s = "lam.1se" value of lam that obtains 1 standard error above the miminum of the cross-validation errors.

  • if s is numeric, it is taken as the value(s) of lam to be used.

  • if s = NULL, uses the whole sequence of lam stored in the "cv.compCL" object.


Whether to use the trimmed result. Default is FASLE.


not used.


s is the vector at which predictions are requested. If s is not in the lambda sequence used for fitting the model, the predict function uses linear interpolation.


predicted values at the requested values of s.
