Description[edit | edit source]

R interfaces to Weka rule learners.

Usage[edit | edit source]

JRip(formula, data, subset, na.action, control = Weka_control(), options = NULL)

M5Rules(formula, data, subset, na.action, control = Weka_control(), options = NULL)

OneR(formula, data, subset, na.action, control = Weka_control(), options = NULL)

PART(formula, data, subset, na.action, control = Weka_control(), options = NULL)

Arguments[edit | edit source]

formula, a symbolic description of the model to be fit.

data, an optional data frame containing the variables in the model.

subset, an optional vector specifying a subset of observations to be used in the fitting process.

na.action, a function which indicates what should happen when the data contain NAs.

control, an object of class Weka_control giving options to be passed to the Weka learner.

options, a named list of further options, or NULL (default).

Details[edit | edit source]

There are a predict method for predicting from the fitted models, and a summary method based on evaluate_Weka_classifier.

JRip implements a propositional rule learner, “Repeated Incremental Pruning to Produce Error Reduction” (RIPPER), as proposed by Cohen (1995).

M5Rules generates a decision list for regression problems using separate-and-conquer. In each iteration it builds an model tree using M5 and makes the “best” leaf into a rule.

OneR builds a simple 1-R classifier, see Holte (1993).

PART generates PART decision lists using the approach of Frank and Witten (1998).

The model formulae should only use the ‘+’ and ‘-’ operators to indicate the variables to be included or not used, respectively. Argument options allows further customization. Currently, options model and instances (or partial matches for these) are used: if set to TRUE, the model frame or the corresponding Weka instances, respectively, are included in the fitted model object, possibly speeding up subsequent computations on the object.

Value[edit | edit source]

A list inheriting from classes Weka_rules and Weka_classifiers with components including:

classifier, a reference (of class jobjRef) to a Java object obtained by applying the Weka buildClassifier method to build the specified model using the given control options.

predictions, a numeric vector or factor with the model predictions for the training instances (the results of calling the Weka classifyInstance method for the built classifier and each instance).

call, the matched call.

Example[edit | edit source]

   M5Rules(mpg ~ ., data = mtcars)
   m <- PART(Species ~ ., data = iris)
