# Logistic regression

Data Preparation: Collect data that contains the features (or input variables) that are believed to be predictive of the outcome, and the outcome variable itself. The data should be cleaned, normalized and preprocessed as necessary to ensure that the features are on similar scales and that there are no missing values or outliers that could adversely affect the model.

Feature Selection: Choose the set of features to be used in the model. Feature selection can be done through various methods such as domain knowledge, statistical tests, or machine learning techniques.

Model Construction: The logistic regression model assumes a linear relationship between the input variables and the log odds of the output variable. In other words, it fits a line to the data that best separates the two classes. The model is constructed by estimating the parameters of this line using a process called maximum likelihood estimation.

Model Training: The model is trained by fitting it to the training data, adjusting the parameters until it is able to accurately predict the outcome variable for the given set of features. This can be done using optimization techniques such as gradient descent or Newton's method.

Model Evaluation: Once the model is trained, it is evaluated using a separate set of validation data. The performance of the model is measured using metrics such as accuracy, precision, recall, and F1 score.

Model Deployment: Once the model is evaluated and deemed to be accurate, it can be deployed for use in real-world applications. This can involve integrating it into a software system or using it to make predictions on new data.

Overall, logistic regression is a powerful and widely used classification algorithm that can help solve a variety of prediction problems.

## Input Syntax

The fields for head line and text support a rather small subset of the TeX language since you are probably used to it. The following constructions are supported:

- An empty line starts a new paragraph.
- The following control sequences are supported:
`TeX`

,`eTeX`

,`LaTeX`

,`LaTeXe`

,`BibTeX`

,`XeTeX`

,`XeLaTeX`

,`TeXLaTeX`

,`MetaFont`

,`MetaPost`

,`PicTeX`

,`-`

,`\`

,`par`

, - Other control sequences remain untouched.
