This is the first-of-its-kind study in its comparison of various smoothers and filters widely used in DNA quantification methods.
Smoothers (and parameters in italics) used are lowess (weighted quadratic least-squares), f (span); Friedman super smoother (cross-validated running lines), span (span); cubic spline, spar (smoothing parameter), Savitzky-Golay (local polynomial regression), p, f (polynomial order, frame size); Kalman (state space model), none; running mean, wsize (window size); Whittaker (recursive penalized B-splines), [lambda] (spline parameter); and exponential moving average (EMA) (weighted recursive exponential smoothing), [alpha] (spline parameter).
The specific class of smoothers considered here are explicit Runge-Kutta methods (RK methods), which have low storage demands and scale well in parallel.
Kannan and Wang used the specific class of SSP RK methods as smoothers in a multi-p method in a spectral volume solver and determined the maximal possible time step for the heat equation [8].
i] are linear functions and nonparametric functions defined by smoothers such as loess (locally estimated polynomial regression) or smoothing splines.
This problem, they suggest, can be corrected either by using stricter convergence criteria or by substituting parametric functions for the nonparametric smoothers in the GAM definition.
