Make predictions or extract coefficients from a fitted foba model

foba() returns a path of variable addition and deletion. predict.foba() allows one to extract a prediction, or coefficients at any desired sparsity level.

Keywords
methods, regression
Usage
predict.foba(object, newx, k, type=c("fit","coefficients"),...)
Arguments
object
A fitted foba object.
newx
If type="fit", then newx should be the x values at which the fit is required. If type="coefficients", then newx can be omitted.
k
The sparsity level. That is, the number of selected variables for the fitted model.
type
If type="fit", predict returns the fitted values. If type="coefficients", predict returns the coefficients. Abbreviations allowed.
...
further arguments passed to or from other methods.
Details

FoBa for least squares regression is described in [Tong Zhang (2008)]. This implementation supports ridge regression.

Value

Return either a "coefficients" object or a "fitted value" object, at the desired sparsity level.A coefficients object is a list containing the following components:
coefficients
coefficients of ridge regression solution using selected.variables
intercept
the intercept value
selected.variables
variables with non-zero coefficients
A "fitted value" object contains the following additional component:
fit
the predicted response for the data newx

### make predictions at the values in x, at sparsity level 5

py <- predict(model, boston$x, k=5, type="fit")

print(paste("mean squared error =", mean((py$fit-boston$y)^2)))

### extract the coefficient vector at sparsity level 5
coef <- predict(model, k=5, type="coef")
