# dislib.regression.LinearRegression¶

class `dislib.regression.linear.base.``LinearRegression`(fit_intercept=True, arity=50)[source]

Bases: `sklearn.base.BaseEstimator`

Multivariate linear regression using ordinary least squares.

The model is: y = alpha + beta*X + err, where alpha is the intercept and beta is a vector of coefficients of shape (n_features,).

The goal is to choose alpha and beta that minimize the sum of the squared errors. These optimal parameters are computed using linear algebra.

Parameters: fit_intercept (bool, optional (default=True)) – Whether to calculate the intercept parameter for this model. If set to False, no intercept will be used in calculations (self.intercept_ will be 0). arity (int, optional (default=50)) – Arity of the reductions. coef (ds-array, shape (n_features, n_targets)) – Estimated coefficients (beta) in the linear model. intercept (ds-array, shape (1, n_targets)) – Estimated independent term (alpha) in the linear model.

`coef_`
`fit`(x, y)[source]

Fit the linear model.

Parameters: x (ds-array, shape (n_samples, n_features)) – Explanatory variables. y (ds-array, shape (n_samples, n_targets)) – Response variables. `NotImplementedError` – If x or y are sparse arrays.
`intercept_`
`predict`(x)[source]

Predict using the linear model.

Parameters: x (ds-array, shape (n_samples_predict, n_features)) – Samples to be predicted. y – Predicted values. ds-array, shape (n_samples_predict, n_targets) `NotImplementedError` – If x is a sparse array.
