Combines regularized regression methods with the estimation of Graphical Gaussian models. parcor framework includes various existing methods as well as two new approaches based on ridge regression and adaptive lasso, respectively. It estimates the matrix of partial correlations based on different regularized regression methods: lasso, adaptive lasso, Partial Least Squares (PLS), and Ridge Regression. These methods are extensively compared both qualitatively and quantitatively within a simulation study and through an application to six diverse real data sets.
