This smooth constructor implements random bits model terms. Note that this is experimental.

## Linear smooth constructor.
rb(..., k = 50)

## For mgcv.
# S3 method for randombits.smooth.spec
smooth.construct(object, data, knots, ...)

Arguments

...

For function rb() a formula of the type ~x1+x2+x3 that specifies the covariates that should be modeled.

k

Integer, number of radnom bit columns in the design matrix.

object, data, knots

See smooth.construct.

Value

Function rb(), similar to function s a simple smooth specification object.

Examples

if (FALSE) ## Simulate data.
set.seed(123)
d <- GAMart()

## Estimate model.
f <- num ~ rb(x1) + rb(x2) + rb(x3) + rb(~lon+lat)

b <- bamlss(f, data = d)
