[…] achieve good extrapolation. The k that gives stable estimate and the last minimum of is chosen to be the kbest. The regression function, extrapolation and corresponding to k = kbest are chosen for recalibrating p-values and re-estimating FDR.The following is the computational procedure for a given in descending order:1. For each (v is the interval over k and default setting is v = [n/100]), l […]
