Elastic net model paths for some generalized linear models

This package fits lasso and elastic-net model paths for regression, logistic and multinomial regression using coordinate descent. The algorithm is extremely fast, and exploits sparsity in the input x matrix where it exists. A variety of predictions can be made from the fitted models.

Very simple to use. Accepts x,y data for regression models, and produces the regularization path over a grid of values for the tuning parameter lambda. Only 5 functions: glmnet predict.glmnet plot.glmnet print.glmnet coef.glmnet
