- Parameters
- X{ndarray, sparse matrix, LinearOperator} of shape (n_samples, n_features)
Training data.
- yndarray of shape (n_samples,) or (n_samples, n_targets)
Target values.
- alphafloat or array-like of shape (n_targets,)
Constant that multiplies the L2 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 theRidge
object is not advised. Instead, you should use theLinearRegression
object.If an array is passed, penalties are assumed to be specific to the targets. Hence they must correspond in number.
- sample_weightfloat or array-like of shape (n_samples,), default=None
Individual weights for each sample. If given a float, every sample will have the same weight. If sample_weight is not None and solver=’auto’, the solver will be set to ‘cholesky’.
New in version 0.17.
- solver{‘auto’, ‘svd’, ‘cholesky’, ‘lsqr’, ‘sparse_cg’, ‘sag’, ‘saga’, ‘lbfgs’}, default=’auto’
Solver to use in the computational routines:
‘auto’ chooses the solver automatically based on the type of data.
‘svd’ uses a Singular Value Decomposition of X to compute the Ridge coefficients. It is the most stable solver, in particular more stable for singular matrices than ‘cholesky’ at the cost of being slower.
‘cholesky’ uses the standard scipy.linalg.solve function to obtain a closed-form solution via a Cholesky decomposition of dot(X.T, X)
‘sparse_cg’ uses the conjugate gradient solver as found in scipy.sparse.linalg.cg. As an iterative algorithm, this solver is more appropriate than ‘cholesky’ for large-scale data (possibility to set
tol
andmax_iter
).‘lsqr’ uses the dedicated regularized least-squares routine scipy.sparse.linalg.lsqr. It is the fastest and uses an iterative procedure.
‘sag’ uses a Stochastic Average Gradient descent, and ‘saga’ uses its improved, unbiased version named SAGA. Both methods also use an iterative procedure, and are often faster than other solvers when both n_samples and n_features are large. Note that ‘sag’ and ‘saga’ fast convergence is only guaranteed on features with approximately the same scale. You can preprocess the data with a scaler from sklearn.preprocessing.
‘lbfgs’ uses L-BFGS-B algorithm implemented in
scipy.optimize.minimize
. It can be used only whenpositive
is True.
All solvers except ‘svd’ support both dense and sparse data. However, only ‘lsqr’, ‘sag’, ‘sparse_cg’, and ‘lbfgs’ support sparse input when
fit_intercept
is True.New in version 0.17: Stochastic Average Gradient descent solver.
New in version 0.19: SAGA solver.
- max_iterint, default=None
Maximum number of iterations for conjugate gradient solver. For the ‘sparse_cg’ and ‘lsqr’ solvers, the default value is determined by scipy.sparse.linalg. For ‘sag’ and saga solver, the default value is 1000. For ‘lbfgs’ solver, the default value is 15000.
- tolfloat, default=1e-3
Precision of the solution.
- verboseint, default=0
Verbosity level. Setting verbose > 0 will display additional information depending on the solver used.
- positivebool, default=False
When set to
True
, forces the coefficients to be positive. Only ‘lbfgs’ solver is supported in this case.- random_stateint, RandomState instance, default=None
Used when
solver
== ‘sag’ or ‘saga’ to shuffle the data. See Glossary for details.- return_n_iterbool, default=False
If True, the method also returns
n_iter
, the actual number of iteration performed by the solver.New in version 0.17.
- return_interceptbool, default=False
If True and if X is sparse, the method also returns the intercept, and the solver is automatically changed to ‘sag’. This is only a temporary fix for fitting the intercept with sparse data. For dense data, use sklearn.linear_model._preprocess_data before your regression.
New in version 0.17.
- check_inputbool, default=True
If False, the input arrays X and y will not be checked.
New in version 0.21.
- Returns
- coefndarray of shape (n_features,) or (n_targets, n_features)
Weight vector(s).
- n_iterint, optional
The actual number of iteration performed by the solver. Only returned if
return_n_iter
is True.- interceptfloat or ndarray of shape (n_targets,)
The intercept of the model. Only returned if
return_intercept
is True and if X is a scipy sparse array.
Notes
This function won’t compute the intercept.
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.
