Method new()

Initialize a PLNnetworkfit object

Usage

PLNnetworkfit$new(
  penalty,
  penalty_weights,
  responses,
  covariates,
  offsets,
  weights,
  formula,
  control
)

Arguments

penalty

a positive real number controlling the level of sparsity of the underlying network.

penalty_weights

either a single or a list of p x p matrix of weights (default filled with 1) to adapt the amount of shrinkage to each pairs of node. Must be symmetric with positive values.

responses

the matrix of responses (called Y in the model). Will usually be extracted from the corresponding field in PLNfamily-class

covariates

design matrix (called X in the model). Will usually be extracted from the corresponding field in PLNfamily-class

offsets

offset matrix (called O in the model). Will usually be extracted from the corresponding field in PLNfamily-class

weights

an optional vector of observation weights to be used in the fitting process.

formula

model formula used for fitting, extracted from the formula in the upper-level call

control

a list for controlling the optimization.

Method optimize()

Call to the C++ optimizer and update of the relevant fields

Method latent_network()

Extract interaction network in the latent space

Usage

PLNnetworkfit$latent_network(type = c("partial_cor", "support", "precision"))

Arguments

type

edge value in the network. Can be "support" (binary edges), "precision" (coefficient of the precision matrix) or "partial_cor" (partial correlation between species)

Returns

a square matrix of size PLNnetworkfit$n

Output type. Either igraph (for the network) or corrplot (for the adjacency matrix)

edge.color

Length 2 color vector. Color for positive/negative edges. Default is c("#F8766D", "#00BFC4"). Only relevant for igraph output.

remove.isolated

if TRUE, isolated node are remove before plotting. Only relevant for igraph output.

node.labels

vector of character. The labels of the nodes. The default will use the column names ot the response matrix.
