k-Nearest Neighbour Regression

$k$-nearest neighbour regression that can return the average value for the neighbours.

Keywords
multivariate
Usage
"knnreg"(x, ...)
"knnreg"(formula, data, subset, na.action, k = 5, ...)
"knnreg"(x, y, k = 5, ...)
"knnreg"(x, y, k = 5, ...)
knnregTrain(train, test, y, k = 5, use.all=TRUE)
Arguments
formula
a formula of the form lhs ~ rhs where lhs is the response variable and rhs a set of predictors.
data
optional data frame containing the variables in the model formula.
subset
optional vector specifying a subset of observations to be used.
na.action
function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NAs.
k
number of neighbours considered.
x
a matrix or data frame of training set predictors.
y
a numeric vector of outcomes.
...
additional parameters to pass to knnregTrain.
train
matrix or data frame of training set cases.
test
matrix or data frame of test set cases. A vector will be interpreted as a row vector for a single case.
use.all
controls handling of ties. If true, all distances equal to the kth largest are included. If false, a random selection of distances equal to the kth is chosen to use exactly k neighbours.
Details

knnreg is similar to ipredknn and knnregTrain is a modification of knn. The underlying C code from the class package has been modified to return average outcome.

Value
