the shrinkage design matrix. This determines the regression coefficients that will be involved in the shrinkage process. |
This is an accessory function that works together with bootval
, splitval
,
kcrossval
and loocval
to estimate a shrinkage factor. For further details,
see References. This function should not be used directly, and instead should
be called via one of the aforementioned shrinkage-after-estimation functions.
the function returns a shrinkage factor.
Currently, this function can only derive a single shrinkage factor for a given model, and is unable to estimate (weighted) predictor-specific shrinkage factors.

## Shrinkage design matrix examples for a model with an ## intercept and 4 predictors: ## 1. Uniform shrinkage (default design within apricomp). sdm1 <- matrix(c(0, rep(1, 4)), nrow = 1) print(sdm1) ## 2. Non-uniform shrinkage; 1 shrinkage factor applied only to the ## first two predictors sdm2 <- matrix(c(0, 1, 1, 0, 0), nrow = 1) print(sdm2)
