SAMBA: a Novel Method for Fast Automatic Model Building in Nonlinear Mixed-Effects Models

Abstract

The success of correctly identifying all the components of a nonlinear mixed-effects model is far from straightforward: it is a question of finding the best structural model, determining the type of relationship between covariates and individual parameters, detecting possible correlations between random effects, or also modeling residual errors. We present the SAMBA (Stochastic Approximation for Model Building Algorithm) procedure and show how this algorithm can be used to speed up this process of model building by identifying at each step how best to improve some of the model components. The principle of this algorithm basically consists in 'learning something' about the 'best model', even when a 'poor model' is used to fit the data. A comparison study of the SAMBA procedure with SCM and COSSAC show similar performances on several real data examples but with a much-reduced computing time. This algorithm is now implemented in Monolix and in the R package Rsmlx.
