## Sparse Group Lasso Solver

This is the R package sglOptim version **1.3.8**.

### R-package Overview

This package doesn’t provide any direct functionality. It is a service package for other R packages, and it provides an implementation of an optimizer of sparse group lasso penalized objective functions. The package is used by the following other R packages:

- For fitting
**multivariate linear regression** models using sparse group lasso see the lsgl R package.
- For fitting
**multinomial classification models** using sparse group lasso see the msgl R package.

More details on the algorithm are given in the paper Sparse group lasso and high dimensional multinomial classification.

The loss/objective function must be defined in a C++ module.

### Installation

Install the released version from CRAN:
