Hi,
I read data from a file. I'm trying to understand how to use Design.rcs by using simple test data first. I use 1000 integer values (1,...,1000) for x (the predictor) with some noise (x+.02*x) and I set the response variable y=x. Then, I try rcs and ols as follows:
m = ( sqrt(y1) ~ ( rcs(x1,3) ) ); #I tried without sqrt also
f = ols(m, data=data_train.df);
print(f);
[I plot original x1,y1 vectors and the regression as in
y <- coef2[1] + coef2[2]*x1 + coef2[3]*x1*x1]
But this gives me a VERY bad fit:

I appreciate any and all help!
