gam.reparam {mgcv}R Documentation

Finding stable orthogonal re-parameterization of the square root penalty.

Description

INTERNAL function for finding an orthogonal re-parameterization which avoids "dominant machine zero leakage" between components of the square root penalty.

Usage

gam.reparam(rS, lsp, deriv)

Arguments

rS

list of the square root penalties: last entry is root of fixed penalty, if fixed.penalty==TRUE (i.e. length(rS)>length(sp)). The assumption here is that rS[[i]] are in a null space of total penalty already; see e.g. totalPenaltySpace and mini.roots.

lsp

vector of log smoothing parameters.

deriv

if deriv==1 also the first derivative of the log-determinant of the penalty matrix is returned, if deriv>1 also the second derivative is returned.

Value

A list containing
