predict.hill.adapt {extremefit}R Documentation

Predict the adaptive survival or quantile function


Give the adaptive survival function or quantile function


## S3 method for class 'hill.adapt'
predict(object, newdata = NULL, type = "quantile",
  input = NULL, ...)



output object of the function hill.adapt.


optionally, a data frame or a vector with which to predict. If omitted, the original data points are used.


either "quantile" or "survival".


optionnaly, the name of the variable to estimate.


further arguments passed to or from other methods.


If type = "quantile", newdata must be between 0 and 1. If type = "survival", newdata must be in the domain of the data from the hill.adapt function. If newdata is a data frame, the variable from which to predict must be the first one or its name must start with a "p" if type = "quantile" and "x" if type = "survival". The name of the variable from which to predict can also be written as input.


The function provide the quantile assiociated to the adaptive model for the probability grid (transformed to -log(1-p) in the output) if type = "quantile". And the survival function assiociated to the adaptive model for the quantile grid if type = "survival".
