Multivariate functional group sparse regression: Functional predictor selection

  title={Multivariate functional group sparse regression: Functional predictor selection},
  author={Ali Mahzarnia and Jun Song},
  journal={PLoS ONE},
In this paper, we propose methods for functional predictor selection and the estimation of smooth functional coefficients simultaneously in a scalar-on-function regression problem under a high-dimensional multivariate functional data setting. In particular, we develop two methods for functional group-sparse regression under a generic Hilbert space of infinite dimension. We show the convergence of algorithms and the consistency of the estimation and the selection (oracle property) under infinite…

Vulnerable Brain Networks Associated with Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease

The authors' sparse regression based predictive models revealed vulnerable networks associated with known risk factors in Alzheimer’s disease risk factors, and represent a stepping stone towards single subject prediction, based on distances from normative graphs.



Multivariate functional linear regression and prediction

Robust group-Lasso for functional regression model

A robust functional predictor selection method, the LAD-group LASSO, for a functional linear regression model with a scalar response and functional predictors, in the presence of outliers is proposed.

Weighted functional linear Cox regression model

The weighted functional linear Cox regression uses a functional principal component analysis to represent the functional covariates and a high-dimensional Cox regression model to capture the joint effects of both scalar and functional covariate on the failure time data.

Functional linear regression analysis for longitudinal data

We propose nonparametric methods for functional linear regression which are designed for sparse longitudinal data, where both the predictor and response are functions of a covariate such as time.

Functional Data Analysis for Sparse Longitudinal Data

We propose a nonparametric method to perform functional principal components analysis for the case of sparse longitudinal data. The method aims at irregularly spaced longitudinal data, where the

Regression Shrinkage and Selection via the Lasso

A new method for estimation in linear models called the lasso, which minimizes the residual sum of squares subject to the sum of the absolute value of the coefficients being less than a constant, is proposed.

Regularization and variable selection via the elastic net

It is shown that the elastic net often outperforms the lasso, while enjoying a similar sparsity of representation, and an algorithm called LARS‐EN is proposed for computing elastic net regularization paths efficiently, much like algorithm LARS does for the lamba.

Multivariate Functional Principal Component Analysis for Data Observed on Different (Dimensional) Domains

ABSTRACT Existing approaches for multivariate functional principal component analysis are restricted to data on the same one-dimensional interval. The presented approach focuses on multivariate
