The area under the curve (AUC) is the integral of the chosen model
y(x; theta)
with respect to x
.
In real applications the response variable is usually contained within a
known interval. For example, if our response represents relative viability
against a control compound, the curve is expected to be between 0 and 1.
Let ylim = c(yl, yu)
represent the admissible range of our function
y(x; theta)
, that is yl
is its lower bound and yu
its upper bound.
Let xlim = c(xl, xu)
represent the admissible range of the predictor
variable x
. For example, when x
represent the dose, the boundaries
are the minimum and maximum doses we can administer.
To make the AUC value comparable between different compounds and/or studies,
this function sets a hard constraint on both the x
variable and the
function y
. The intervals can always be changed if needed.
The integral calculated by this function is of the piece-wise function
f(x; theta)
defined as
f(x; theta) = yl
, if y(x; theta) < yl
f(x; theta) = y(x; theta)
, if yl <= y(x; theta) <= yu
f(x; theta) = yu
, if y(x; theta) > yu
The AUC is finally normalized by its maximum possible value, that is the
area of the rectangle with width xu - xl
and height yu - yl
.
