ICE plot for projection pursuit regression with compositional predictor variables

Description

ICE plot for projection pursuit regression with compositional predictor variables.

Usage

ice.pprcomp(y, x, nterms = 3, k = 1, type = "alr")

Arguments

y

A numerical vector with the continuous variable.

x

A matrix with the compositional data. No zero values are allowed.

nterms

The number of terms to include in the final model.

k

Which variable to select?.

type

Either "alr" or "log" corresponding to the additive log-ratio transformation or the simple logarithm applied to the compositional data.

Details

This function implements the Individual Conditional Expecation plots of Goldstein et al. (2015). See the references for more details.

Value

A graph with several curves. The horizontal axis contains the selected variable, whereas the vertical axis contains the centered predicted values. The black curves are the effects for each observation and whe blue line is their average effect. The turquoise line is the smmothed curve produced by the loess function of the average effect and the selected variable.
