Shrinkage Structure of Ridge Partial Least Squares Regression

  • Published : 2007.04.30


Ridge partial least squares regression (RPLS) is a regression method which can be obtained by combining ridge regression and partial least squares regression and is intended to provide better predictive ability and less sensitive to overfitting. In this paper, explicit expressions for the shrinkage factor of RPLS are developed. The structure of the shrinkage factor is explored and compared with those of other biased regression methods, such as ridge regression, principal component regression, ridge principal component regression, and partial least squares regression using a near infrared data set.
