earth (version 5.3.0)

mars.to.earth: Convert a mars object from the mda package to an earth object

Description

Convert a mars object from the mda package to an earth object

Usage

mars.to.earth(object, trace=TRUE)

Arguments

object

A mars object, created using mars in the mda package.

trace

If TRUE (default) print a summary of the conversion.

Value

The value is the same format as that returned by earth but with skeletal versions of rss.per.subset, gcv.per.subset, and prune.terms.

You can fully initialize these components by calling update.earth after mars.to.earth, but if you do this selected.terms may change. However with pmethod="backward" a change is unlikely --- selected.terms would change only if GCVs are so close that numerical errors have an effect.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
if(require(mda)) {
    mars.mod <- mars(trees[,-3], trees[,3])
    earth.mod <- mars.to.earth(mars.mod)
    # the standard earth functions can now be used
    # note the reconstructed call in the summary
    summary(earth.mod, digits = 2)
}
# }
