The function implements the propagation separation approach to
nonparametric smoothing (formerly introduced as Adaptive weights smoothing)
for varying coefficient likelihood models with vector valued response on a 1D, 2D or 3D grid.
The function implements a version the propagation separation approach that uses vector valued instead of scalar responses.
vaws(y, kstar = 16, sigma2 = 1, mask = NULL, scorr = 0, spmin = 0.25,
ladjust = 1, wghts = NULL, u = NULL, maxni = FALSE)
vawscov(y, kstar = 16, invcov = NULL, mask = NULL, scorr = 0, spmin = 0.25,
ladjust = 1, wghts = NULL, u = NULL, maxni = FALSE)
y 

kstar 
maximal number of steps to employ. Determines maximal bandwidth. 
sigma2 
specifies a homogeneous error variance. 
invcov 
array of voxelwise inverse covariance matrixes, first index corresponds to upper diagonal inverse covariance matrix. 
mask 
logical mask. All computations are restrikted to design poins within the mask. 
scorr 
The vector 
spmin 
determines the form (size of the plateau) in the adaptation kernel. Not to be changed by the user. 
ladjust 
factor to increase the default value of lambda 
wghts 

u 
a "true" value of the regression function, may be provided to
report risks at each iteration. This can be used to test the propagation condition with 
maxni 
If TRUE use
