Loess

Local regression, so smooooth!

Readme

Loess

Build Status Loess Loess

This is a pure Julia loess implementation, based on the fast kd-tree based approximation described in the original Cleveland, et al papers, implemented in the netlib loess C/Fortran code, and used by many, including in R's loess function.

Synopsis

Loess exports two functions: loess and predict, that train and apply the model, respectively.

using Loess

xs = 10 .* rand(100)
ys = sin(xs) .+ 0.5 * rand(100)

model = loess(xs, ys)

us = collect(minimum(xs):0.1:maximum(xs))
vs = predict(model, us)

using Gadfly
p = plot(x=xs, y=ys, Geom.point, Guide.xlabel("x"), Guide.ylabel("y"),
         layer(Geom.line, x=us, y=vs))
draw(SVG("loess.svg", 6inch, 3inch), p)

Example Plot

There's also a shortcut in Gadfly to draw these plots:

plot(x=xs, y=ys, Geom.point, Geom.smooth, Guide.xlabel("x"), Guide.ylabel("y"))

Status

Multivariate regression is not yet fully implemented, but most of the parts are already there, and wouldn't require too much additional work.
