Adjusted R squared on a holdout set

The formula for adjusted $R^2$ is: $$1 - \frac{(n-1)}{(n-p-1)}(1-R^2)$$ where $r^2$ is the coefficient of determination, $n$ is the number of points, and $p$ is the number of parameters the model ...

Intercept in demeaned and rescaled regression model

Suppose I have a linear model; $Y=X\beta+\epsilon$ Where $X$ is $(n \times p)$, with the first column of $X$ being an intercept column (consisting only of ones). Now suppose I construct $\tilde{X}$ ...
