OHPL implements the ordered homogeneity pursuit lasso (OHPL) algorithm for group variable selection proposed in Lin et al. (2017) <DOI:10.1016/j.chemolab.2017.07.004>. The OHPL method takes the homogeneity structure in high-dimensional data into account and enjoys the grouping effect to select groups of important variables automatically. This feature makes it particularly useful for high-dimensional datasets with strongly correlated variables, such as spectroscopic data.
