[…] computing environment was used for all analyses []. the r package mgcv was used for fitting the gams with penalised regression splines []. gradient boosting was performed using the r package mboost []., in the full time-series (1990-2015) there was a clear seasonal cycle of asthma emergency department presentations with four peaks that were centred in late february, june, august […]

[…] is spanned by the base-learners. the algorithm effectively optimizes the loss function step by step, eventually converging to the minimum., gradient boosting is implemented in the add-on package mboost [] for the open source programming environment r [], providing a large number of preimplemented loss functions for various regression settings, as well as different base-learners to represent […]

[…] [] is used to roll out the experiments on a high performance computing cluster. for the classification and filter methods, we additionally rely on the r packages fmrmr [], kernlab [], liblinear [], mboost [], ranger [], and rocr []., we compare the measures of stability empirically on the data set ap_colon_kidney. for the two other data sets, we have obtained very similar results which lead […]

[…] tussock and shrub tussock had the highest agb, and desert steppe had the lowest. rainfall higher than 400 m might have benefitted the grassland agb. compared with those obtained for the bagging, mboost and the support vector machine (svm) models, higher values for the mean pearson coefficient (r) and the symmetric index of agreement (λ) were obtained for the rf model, indicating that this rf […]
