Hello Dear All,
I need some help! It was very early this morning when I tried to analyze some data with JMP Functional Data Explorer. I used the data with functions as columns and I analyzed them with B-splines. I got very nice results, I could see directly the sigmoidal curves on the plots and also the PCA was fine. I tried again later but it did not work. I updated from JMP 15.0.0 to the new version but it still did not produce what I expected. I tried P-splines but nothing. I am attaching the jmp data table with a script. It is like the fitting procedure stops at some x value so that just a subset of the data is well fitted. The PCA results are either strange (both components identical) or ‘not available’. Strangely when I look at the diagnostic plots everything looks perfect. If I was awake in the early morning and I saw JMP producing beautiful results my guess is that JMP uses some starting points for numerical optimization that it reminds from previous runs… Is there a way to change this initial condition? It may be useful to log transform the x scale to better visualize the data. I tried also to change settings in preferences without success.
Great, I'm glad to hear that worked. You're right, we don't have a way to easily transform X currently. But it's on our list!
