sklearn.linear_model
.Lasso¶
- class sklearn.linear_model.Lasso(alpha=1.0, *, fit_intercept=True, precompute=False, copy_X=True, max_iter=1000, tol=0.0001, warm_start=False, positive=False, random_state=None, selection='cyclic')[source]¶
Linear Model trained with L1 prior as regularizer (aka the Lasso).
The optimization objective for Lasso is:
(1 / (2 * n_samples)) * ||y - Xw||^2_2 + alpha * ||w||_1
Technically the Lasso model is optimizing the same objective function as the Elastic Net with
l1_ratio=1.0
(no L2 penalty).Read more in the User Guide.
- Parameters:
- alphafloat, default=1.0
Constant that multiplies the L1 term, controlling regularization strength.
alpha
must be a non-negative float i.e. in[0, inf)
.When
alpha = 0
, the objective is equivalent to ordinary least squares, solved by theLinearRegression
object. For numerical reasons, usingalpha = 0
with theLasso
object is not advised. Instead, you should use theLinearRegression
object.- fit_interceptbool, default=True
Whether to calculate the intercept for this model. If set to False, no intercept will be used in calculations (i.e. data is expected to be centered).
- precomputebool or array-like of shape (n_features, n_features), default=False
Whether to use a precomputed Gram matrix to speed up calculations. The Gram matrix can also be passed as argument. For sparse input this option is always
False
to preserve sparsity.- copy_Xbool, default=True
If
True
, X will be copied; else, it may be overwritten.- max_iterint, default=1000
The maximum number of iterations.
- tolfloat, default=1e-4
The tolerance for the optimization: if the updates are smaller than
tol
, the optimization code checks the dual gap for optimality and continues until it is smaller thantol
, see Notes below.- warm_startbool, default=False
When set to True, reuse the solution of the previous call to fit as initialization, otherwise, just erase the previous solution. See the Glossary.
- positivebool, default=False
When set to
True
, forces the coefficients to be positive.- random_stateint, RandomState instance, default=None
The seed of the pseudo random number generator that selects a random feature to update. Used when
selection
== ‘random’. Pass an int for reproducible output across multiple function calls. See Glossary.- selection{‘cyclic’, ‘random’}, default=’cyclic’
If set to ‘random’, a random coefficient is updated every iteration rather than looping over features sequentially by default. This (setting to ‘random’) often leads to significantly faster convergence especially when tol is higher than 1e-4.
- Attributes:
- coef_ndarray of shape (n_features,) or (n_targets, n_features)
Parameter vector (w in the cost function formula).
- dual_gap_float or ndarray of shape (n_targets,)
Given param alpha, the dual gaps at the end of the optimization, same shape as each observation of y.
sparse_coef_
sparse matrix of shape (n_features, 1) or (n_targets, n_features)Sparse representation of the fitted
coef_
.- intercept_float or ndarray of shape (n_targets,)
Independent term in decision function.
- n_iter_int or list of int
Number of iterations run by the coordinate descent solver to reach the specified tolerance.
- n_features_in_int
Number of features seen during fit.
New in version 0.24.
- feature_names_in_ndarray of shape (
n_features_in_
,) Names of features seen during fit. Defined only when
X
has feature names that are all strings.New in version 1.0.

Notes
The algorithm used to fit the model is coordinate descent.
To avoid unnecessary memory duplication the X argument of the fit method should be directly passed as a Fortran-contiguous numpy array.
Regularization improves the conditioning of the problem and reduces the variance of the estimates. Larger values specify stronger regularization. Alpha corresponds to
1 / (2C)
in other linear models such asLogisticRegression
orLinearSVC
. If an array is passed, penalties are assumed to be specific to the targets. Hence they must correspond in number.The precise stopping criteria based on
tol
are the following: First, check that that maximum coordinate update, i.e. \(\max_j |w_j^{new} - w_j^{old}|\) is smaller thantol
times the maximum absolute coefficient, \(\max_j |w_j|\). If so, then additionally check whether the dual gap is smaller thantol
times \(||y||_2^2 / n_{\text{samples}}\).The target can be a 2-dimensional array, resulting in the optimization of the following objective:
(1 / (2 * n_samples)) * ||Y - XW||^2_F + alpha * ||W||_11
where \(||W||_{1,1}\) is the sum of the magnitude of the matrix coefficients. It should not be confused with
MultiTaskLasso
which instead penalizes the \(L_{2,1}\) norm of the coefficients, yielding row-wise sparsity in the coefficients.Examples
>>> from sklearn import linear_model >>> clf = linear_model.Lasso(alpha=0.1) >>> clf.fit([[0,0], [1, 1], [2, 2]], [0, 1, 2]) Lasso(alpha=0.1) >>> print(clf.coef_) [0.85 0. ] >>> print(clf.intercept_) 0.15...

Where:
||W||_21 = \sum_i \sqrt{\sum_j w_{ij}^2}

- predict(X)[source]¶
Predict using the linear model.
- Parameters:
- Xarray-like or sparse matrix, shape (n_samples, n_features)
Samples.
- Returns:
- Carray, shape (n_samples,)
Returns predicted values.
- score(X, y, sample_weight=None)[source]¶
Return the coefficient of determination of the prediction.
The coefficient of determination \(R^2\) is defined as \((1 - \frac{u}{v})\), where \(u\) is the residual sum of squares
((y_true - y_pred)** 2).sum()
and \(v\) is the total sum of squares((y_true - y_true.mean()) ** 2).sum()
. The best possible score is 1.0 and it can be negative (because the model can be arbitrarily worse). A constant model that always predicts the expected value ofy
, disregarding the input features, would get a \(R^2\) score of 0.0.- Parameters:
- Xarray-like of shape (n_samples, n_features)
Test samples. For some estimators this may be a precomputed kernel matrix or a list of generic objects instead with shape
(n_samples, n_samples_fitted)
, wheren_samples_fitted
is the number of samples used in the fitting for the estimator.- yarray-like of shape (n_samples,) or (n_samples, n_outputs)
True values for
X
.- sample_weightarray-like of shape (n_samples,), default=None
Sample weights.
- Returns:
- scorefloat

self.predict(X)
w.r.t.y
.
Notes
The \(R^2\) score used when calling
score
on a regressor usesmultioutput='uniform_average'
from version 0.23 to keep consistent with default value ofr2_score
. This influences thescore
method of all the multioutput regressors (except forMultiOutputRegressor
).
