fit.glmnet {c060}R Documentation

Interface function for fitting a penalized regression model with glmnet

Description

Interface for fitting penalized regression models for binary of survival endpoint using glmnet, conforming to the requirements for argument fit.fun in peperr call.

Usage

fit.glmnet(response, x, cplx, ...)

Arguments

response

a survival object (with Surv(time, status), or a binary vector with entries 0 and 1).

x

n*p matrix of covariates.

cplx

lambda penalty value.

...

additional arguments passed to glmnet call such as family.

Details

Function is basically a wrapper for glmnet of package glmnet. Note that only penalized Cox PH (family="cox") and logistic regression models (family="binomial") are sensible for prediction error evaluation with package peperr.

Value

glmnet object
