dlasso {DLASSO}R Documentation

An implementation of dlasso using iterative ridge algorithm

Description

This function allows implementing differentiable lasso (dlasso) for arbitrary values of λ and s.

Usage

dlasso (x,
       y,
       s  =  1           ,
       intercept = FALSE ,
       c  = 1            ,
       adp = TRUE        ,
       lambda = NULL     ,
       split  = 50       ,
       maxIter = 500     ,
       adj = 1.1         ,
       lowlambda = 10^-3 ,
       digit = 5         ,
       cauchy = FALSE    ,
       force = 'auto'    ,
       trace = FALSE)

Arguments

x

Matrix of predictors

y

Response vector

s

A single or a vector of precision value, s, given adp=FALSE. Default is 1. See "adp" parameter.

intercept

Logical flag. If TRUE, an intercept is included in the model, otherwise no intercept is included. Default is FALSE.

c

Choose between dlasso (c=1) and dSCAD (c=-1). Default is dlasso. See futher "force" parameter.

adp

Logical flag. TRUE to use adaptive adjustment for s. If TRUE then the function ignores the initial s.

lambda

Optional values for the tuning parameter. A single value or a sequence of values. Useful for manually searching over user defined set of tuning values. Set to any negative value to activate the automatic setting for λ.max and λ.min.

split

The number of splits between λ.min and λ.max.

maxIter

The maximum iterations for the algorithm. Default is 500.

adj

Positive value. This value adjusts the upper value for the penalty term, adj*λ.max.

lowlambda

The lower limit for the tuning parameter. Default is 10^-3.

digit

The maximum number of digits before setting an estimation to zero. The default is 5 digits.

cauchy

Logical flag. Set to TRUE to use Cauchy CDF instead of Gaussian one in the penalty function. The default is Gaussian.

force

Logical flag. Set to TRUE to let only a decrease in absolute estimation of the parameters. Default is 'auto' that is only applied if sqrt(n)>2*log(p) for n the number of observations and p the number of parameters.

trace

Logical flag. If TRUE, output contains some information about the steps. Default is FALSE.

Value

A "dlasso" object of the form of a matrix ( λ | s | AICc | GIC | BIC | GCV | estimations).

Examples

    # dLASSO
    r = 5
    zr= 95
    n = 50
    b = c(1:r,rep(0,zr))
    x = matrix(rnorm((r+zr)*n),ncol=r+zr)
    y = x %*% b +rnorm(n)
    dLasso = dlasso(x=x,y=y,adp=TRUE)
    plot(dLasso,label=.1,cex=.80,all = 1)
    coef(dLasso)
    # dSCAD
    dscad = dlasso(x=x,y=y,c=-1,adj=50)
    plot(dscad,label=.1,cex=.80,all = 1)
    coef(dscad)
