Transformation-free linear regression for compositional responses and predictors {Compositional}R Documentation

Transformation-free linear regression for compositional responses and predictors

Description

Transformation-free linear regression for compositional responses and predictors.

Usage

tflr(y, x, xnew = NULL)

Arguments

y

A matrix with the compositional response. Zero values are allowed.

x

A matrix with the compositional predictors. Zero values are allowed.

xnew

If you have new data use it, otherwise leave it NULL.

Details

The transformation-free linear regression for compositional responses and predictors is implemented. The function to be minized is -∑_{i=1}^ny_i\log{y_i/(X_iB)}.

Value

A list including:

runtime

The time required by the regression.

loglik

The log-likelihood.

be

The beta coefficients.

est

The fitted values of xnew if xnew is not NULL.
