Predict matrix method functions

Description

The various built in smooth classes for use with gam have associate Predict.matrix method functions to enable prediction from the fitted model.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'cr.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'cs.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'cyclic.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'pspline.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'tensor.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'tprs.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 'ts.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)
## S3 method for class 't2.smooth'
Predict.matrix(object, data)

Arguments

object

a smooth object, usually generated by a smooth.construct method having processed a smooth specification object generated by an s or te term in a gam formula.

data

A data frame containing the values of the (named) covariates at which the smooth term is to be evaluated. Exact requirements are as for smooth.construct and smooth.construct2

.

Details

The Predict matrix function is not normally called directly, but is rather used internally by predict.gam etc. to predict from a fitted gam model. See Predict.matrix for more details, or the specific smooth.construct pages for details on a particular smooth class.

Value

A matrix mapping the coeffients for the smooth term to its values at the supplied data values.
