rmvm {asbio}R Documentation

A multivariate normal dataset for data mining

Description

Contains a Y variable constrained to be a random function of fifteen X variables, which, in turn, are generated from a multivariate normal distribution with no correlation between dimensions.

Usage

data("rmvm")

Format

A data frame with 500 observations on the following 16 variables.

Y

A response vector defined to be: Y = X_1 + X_2 + X_3 + X_4 + X_5 + X_6 + X_7 + X_8 + X_9 + X_{10} + X_{11} + X_{12} + X_{13} + X_{14} + X_{15} + ε where ε \sim N(0, 1).

## Code used to create data
## Not run: 
sigma <- matrix(nrow = 15, ncol = 15, 0)
diag(sigma) = 1
mvn <- rmvnorm(n=500, mean=rnorm(15), sigma=sigma)
Y <- mvn[,1] + mvn[,2] + mvn[,3] + mvn[,4] + mvn[,4] + mvn[,5] + mvn[,6] + mvn[,7] +
mvn[,8] + mvn[,9] + mvn[,10] + mvn[,11] + mvn[,12] + mvn[,13] + mvn[,14] + mvn[15] + rnorm(500)
rmvm <- data.frame(cbind(Y, mvn))
names(rmvm) <- c("Y", paste("X", 1:15, sep = ""))
