Dear R-Help-Supporters,

I am working on a regression problem using a set of trainig data (X|Y) and
the R-function ppr() in the modreg library. I have succeeded in having
create an object B which contains the vectors B$alpha and coefficients
B$beta for the ridge functions. But now i am stuck fast. Could you please
either give me an adress to someone who knows ppr() or, if that
happens to be yourself, help me with the following two questions:

* The ridge functions ought to be of the form f_i(alpha_i*X) where the f_i
  are univariate regression estimates, i.e. a nearest neighbour estimate.
  Which type of estimate did you choose for your program?

* After calling B<-ppr(...) and after choosing some x<-c(x1,...,xd). How
  can i make R give me a prediction for y on x?

All the best is sent to you by
        Markus Koch
