Simulation experiments with different L
norm. Upper Row: Solution paths generated by BLasso for NSMAP with different p norm on the simulated data on the gene Eif5a. The Y-axis is the estimated isoform concentrations ranging [0,300]. The X-axis for two figures in upper panel is . Lower Row: The probability density functions of Laplace distribution and a Laplace-like distribution with L1/2 norm P(x)∝exp(-||x||1/2); both of them have unit variances.
