ppls: penalized partial least squares
This package contains functions to estimate linear and nonlinear regression methods with Penalized Partial Least Squares. Partial Leasts Squares (PLS) is a regression method that constructs latent components Xw from the data X with maximal covariance to a response y. The components are then used in a least-squares fit instead of X. For a quadratic penalty term on w, Penalized Partial Least Squares constructs latent components that maximize the penalized covariance. Applications include the estimation of generalized additive models and functional data.
