logregtree: Format of class logregtree

Description

This help file contains a description of the format of class logregtree.

Usage

logregtree()

Arguments

Value

An object of class logregtree is typically a substructure of an object of the class logregmodel. It will typically be the result of using the fitting function logreg. An object of class logictree has the following components:

whichtree

the sequence number of the current tree within the model.

coef

the coefficients of this tree.

trees

a matrix (data.frame) with five columns; see below for the format.

Details

When storing trees, we number the location of the nodes using the following scheme (this is an example for a tree with at most 8 terminal nodes, but the generalization should be obvious):

1
2 3
4 5 6 7
8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

Each node may or may not be present in the current tree. If it is present, it can contain an operator (``and'' or ``or''), in which case it has to child nodes, or it can contain a variable, in which case the node is a terminal node. It is also possible that the node does not exist (as the user only specifies the maximum tree size, not the tree size that is actually fitted).

Output files have one line for each node. Each line contains 5 numbers:

  1. the node number.

  2. does this node contain an ``and'' (1), an ``or'' (2), a variable (3), or is the node empty (0).

  3. if the node contains a variable, which one is it; e.g. if this number is 3 the node contains X3.

  4. if the node contains a variable, does it contain the regular variable (0) or its complement (1)

  5. is the node empty (0) or not (1) (this information is redundant with the second number)

Example

AND
OR OR
OR OR X20 OR
X17 X12 X3 X13c X2 X1

is represented as

1 1 0 0 1
2 2 0 0 1
3 2 0 0 1
4 2 0 0 1
5 2 0 0 1
6 3 20 0 1
7 2 0 0 1
8 3 17 0 1
9 3 12 0 1
10 3 3 0 1
11 3 13 1 1
12 0 0 0 0
13 0 0 0 0
14 3 2 0 1
15 3 1 0 1
