sparsenet: Fit Sparse Linear Regression Models via Nonconvex Optimization

Efficient procedure for fitting regularization paths between L1 and L0, using the MC+ penalty of Zhang, C.H. (2010)<doi:10.1214/09-AOS729>. Implements the methodology described in Mazumder, Friedman and Hastie (2011) <doi:10.1198/jasa.2011.tm09738>. Sparsenet computes the regularization surface over both the family parameter and the tuning parameter by coordinate descent.
