Method home for mars3.6-bag-1

The Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS) method was developed by Jerome Friedman. The bagging procedure is used in conjuction with MARS. A short description is available in hypertext and postscript format. For a more detailed description refer to the literature.


Source code for doing bagging with MARS written in C by Mike Revow is available as a compressed tar file. Friedman's implementation in FORTRAN (version 3.6) is no longer freely distributed, and hence is no longer included in the DELVE archive.


Directory listing of the results available for the mars3.6-bag-1 method. Put the desired files in the appropriate methods directory in your delve hierarchy and uncompress them with using the "gunzip *.gz" command and untar them using "tar -xvf *.tar".
