You can try the locfit package, which I believe can handle up to 5
Looking in the locfit documentation (e.g.
http://www.stats.bris.ac.uk/R/web/packages/locfit/locfit.pdf) I can't see an
upper limit on the number of predictors; if it is 5 I'm getting close in one
of my applications.
Can anyone confirm or deny the existence of a 'crisp' upper limit on the
number of predictors in locfit?
If it is 5, or thereabouts, can anyone suggest an alternative which can
handle a few more? (I'm using it for multidimensional interpolation).
