Makes the predicted variance non negative


Makes the predicted variance non negative


fixbounds.predict.smooth.spline(object,x, deriv=0)


object variance from baseOlig.error function
x vector for which variance needs to be predicted
deriv derivative of the vetor required, default =0


Returns the predicted variance for the given vector based on the baseline error distribution. Maximum and minimum predicted values for the vetor are same as those of baseline error distribution
