I'm trying to implement a logistic regression function in matlab. I calculated the theta values, linear regression cost function is converging and then I use those parameters in logistic regression function as a decision boundary.
I'm trying to obtain an overfit logistic regression tree to show how cost function behaves during overfitting with respect to training set size. I get a converging training error which is expected. I also get an increasing validation error which is also expected but even though they are increasing, my validation error values are always below the training error values. Is it suppossed to be like that (because we are using the logarithm of the hypothesis function and not the squared error function) or am I doing something wrong?. (I can't post images because I'm a new member)
My cost function calculations are included in the code part, I'd appreciate any help.
for i=1:row if y(i)>0 classification(i)=1; else classification(i)=0; end classpredict(i)=1/(1+exp(-(ypredict(i)))); end for i=1:size(data,1)-row if validy(i)>0 classvalid(i)=1; else classvalid(i)=0; end classvalidpredict(i)=1/(1+exp(-(validpredicty(i)))); end for i=1:size(classpredict) costclasstrain=-(costclasstrain+(classification(i))*(log(classpredict(i)))+(1-classification(i))*(log(1-classpredict(i))))/row; end for i=1:size(classvalidpredict) costclassvalid=-(costclassvalid+(classvalid(i))*(log(classvalidpredict(i)))+(1-classvalid(i))*(log(1-classvalidpredict(i))))/(size(data,1)-row); end
