Overview on Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines
This chapter provides an overview of multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS). Its main purpose is to introduce the reader to the major concepts underlying this data mining technique, particularly those that are relevant to the chapter that involves the use of this technique. This chapter includes an illustrative example and also provides guidance for interpreting a MARS model.
