Title: VGAMviz
Supervisor: Thomas Yee
Prerequisites: STATS 330, and STATS 380 or 782
This project in statistical computing entails writing an R package
called VGAMviz for improved VGAM plots. The VGAM objects are fitted
in package VGAM, and the idea is to mimic what mgcViz does to mgcv.
Some exposure to regression modelling involving smoothing would be
good background. This project will use S4 object-oriented programming
and graphical software such as the ggplot2 package to design plots
of regression objects such as those involving smoothing splines.
There are other ideas worth exploring, such as dynamic/interactive
graphics and big data sets.
