About the data set Consider a regression problem.
Mar 10, One possible robust strategy of pruning the tree (or stopping the tree to grow) consists of avoiding splitting a partition if the split does not significantly improves the overall quality of the model. In rpart package, this is controlled by the complexity parameter (cp), which imposes a penalty to the tree for having two many splits.
The default value is /5(1). May 08, If you want to prune the tree, you need to provide the optional parameter treeclearing.barl which controls the fit of the tree. R documentation below, eg.: rpart(formula, data, method, control = treeclearing.barl) treeclearing.barl = treeclearing.barl(minsplit = 20, minbucket = round(minsplit/3), cp =maxcompete = 4, maxsurrogate = 5, usesurrogate = 2, xval = 10, surrogatestyle = 0, maxdepth = 30).
Nov 30, The idea here is to allow the decision tree to grow fully and observe the CP value. Next, we prune/cut the tree with the optimal CP value as the parameter as shown in below code: 7. 1. # Author: Sibanjan Das. Apr 27, Behind the scenes, the caret::train function calls the rpart::rpart function to perform the learning process.
In this example, cost complexity pruning (with hyperparameter cp = c(0,)) is performed using leave-one-out cross validation. There are some other parameters worth mentioning.
The dots parameter (i.e., Estimated Reading Time: 6 mins. Determines a nested sequence of subtrees of the supplied tree by recursively “snipping” off the least important splits.
