  • abbr. locally weighted robust scatterplot smoothing


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Lowess regression was performed using the "lowess" function with a smoother span of 0.2

  • Even if you're just adding the trend as a smoother (and a moving average would almost always be a better way to smooth time series data, while a lowess would be the more normal way to smooth a scatterplot), selecting one by the r-squared criterion (or any other residual variance criterion) wouldn't necessarily make sense.

  • Steve M., loess and lowess both treat end conditions the same way.

  • I fitted it with lowess using f=1/3, a more usual smooth, just to see what it looked like top panel.

  • He could have just put a spline or lowess and smoothed without padding as well.

  • The statistical package R is used for the correction, and specifically the scatter plot smoothing function lowess using default parameters.

  • The jagged line is annual averages, the smooth line is a lowess smooth.

  • We can also look at the monthly values for the gridwide average, together with a lowess smooth (in red) and 5-year averages (in blue):

  • ArrayNorm features a variety of normalization methods, such as 'global median', 'dyeswap-pairs normalization', 'lowess fitting' and 'normalization using control-spots'.

  • Our expectation was that this repeated analysis would have reduced power because the proportionally large number of C1 strains that exhibit high variance would bias the lowess regression to decrease the magnitude of residuals.
