rpart.object {rpart}  R Documentation 
These are objects representing fitted rpart
trees.
frame 
data frame with one row for each node in the tree.
The row.names of frame contain the (unique) node numbers that
follow a binary ordering indexed by node depth.
Elements of frame include var ,
the variable used in the split at each node
(leaf nodes are denoted by the string <leaf> ), n , the size of each node,
wt , the sum of case weights for the node,
dev , the deviance of each node,
yval , the fitted value of the response at each node,
and splits , a two column matrix of left and right split labels
for each node.
All of these are the same as for an rpart object.
Extra response information is in yval2 , which contains the number
of events at the node (poisson), or a matrix containing the fitted
class, the class counts for each node and the class probabilities
(classification). Also included in the frame are complexity , the
complexity parameter at which this split will collapse, ncompete ,
the number of competitor splits retained, and nsurrogate , the
number of surrogate splits retained.

where 
vector, the same length as the number of observations in the root node,
containing the row number of frame corresponding to the leaf node
that each observation falls into.

splits 
a matrix describing the splits. The row label is the name of the split
variable, and columns are count , the number of observations sent left
or right by the split (for competitor splits this is the number that
would have been sent left or right had this split been used, for surrogate
splits it is the number missing the primary split variable which were decided
using this surrogate), ncat , the number of categories or levels for the
variable (+/1 for a continuous variable), improve , which is the improvement
in deviance given by this split, or, for surrogates, the concordance of the
surrogate with the primary, and split , the numeric split point.
The last column adj gives the adjusted concordance for surrogate splits.
For
a factor, the split column contains the row number of the csplit matrix.
For a continuous variable, the sign of ncat determines whether the
subset x < cutpoint or x > cutpoint is sent to the left.

csplit 
this will be present only if one of the split variables is a factor. There
is one row for each such split, and column i = 1 if this level of the
factor goes to the left, 3 if it goes to the right, and 2 if that level
is not present at this node of the tree.
For an ordered categorical variable all levels are marked as R/L ,
including levels that are not present.

method 
the method used to grow the tree. 
cptable 
the table of optimal prunings based on a complexity parameter. 
terms 
an object of mode expression and class term summarizing the formula.
Used by various methods, but typically not of direct relevance to users.

call 
an image of the call that produced the object, but with the arguments
all named and with the actual formula included as the formula argument.
To reevaluate the call, say update(tree) .
Optional components include the matrix of predictors ( x ) and the
response variable (y ) used to construct the rpart object.

The following components must be included in a legitimate rpart
object.
Of these, only the where
component has the same length as
the data used to fit the rpart
object.
