### 3.1. OLS

statinf comes with the OLS regression implemented with the analytical formula:

from statinf.regressions import OLS
from statinf.data import generate_dataset

# Generate a synthetic dataset
data = generate_dataset(coeffs=[1.2556, -0.465, 1.665414, 2.5444, -7.56445], n=1000, std_dev=1.6)

# We set the OLS formula
formula = "Y ~ X0 + X1 + X2 + X3 + X4 + X1*X2 + exp(X2)"
# We fit the OLS with the data, the formula and without intercept
ols = OLS(formula, df, fit_intercept=True)

ols.summary()


The output will be:

### 3.2. GLM

The logistic regression can be used for binary classification where follows a Bernoulli distribution. With being the matrix of regressors, we have:

We then implement the regression with:

from statinf.regressions import GLM
from statinf.data import generate_dataset

# Generate a synthetic dataset
data = generate_dataset(coeffs=[1.2556, -6.465, 1.665414, -1.5444], n=2500, std_dev=10.5, binary=True)

# We split data into train/test/application
train = data.iloc[0:1000]
test = data.iloc[1001:2000]

# We set the linear formula for Xb
formula = "Y ~ X0 + X1 + X2 + X3"
logit = GLM(formula, train, test_set=test)

# Fit the model
logit.fit(plot=False, maxit=10)

logit.get_weights()


The ouput will be:

==================================================================================
|                                  Logit summary                                 |

### 3.3. Multi Layer Perceptron

You can train a Neural Network using the MLP class. The below example shows how to train an MLP with 1 single linear layer. It is equivalent to implement an OLS with Gradient Descent.

from statinf.data import generate_dataset
from statinf.ml import MLP, Layer

# Generate the synthetic dataset
data = generate_dataset(coeffs=[1.2556, -6.465, 1.665414, 1.5444], n=1000, std_dev=1.6)

Y = ['Y']
X = [c for c in data.columns if c not in Y]

# Initialize the network and its architecture
nn = MLP()

# Train the neural network
nn.train(data=data, X=X, Y=Y, epochs=1, learning_rate=0.001)

# Extract the network's weights
print(nn.get_weights())


Output:

{'weights 0': array([[ 1.32005564],
[-6.38121934],
[ 1.64515704],
[ 1.48571785]]), 'bias 0': array([0.81190412])}
