Description: Slope heuristics: overview and implementation. Model selection is a general paradigm which includes many statistical problems. One of the most fruitful and popular approaches to carry it out is the minimization of a penalized criterion. L. Birgé and P. Massart [Probab. Theory Relat. Fields 138, No. 1–2, 33–73 (2007; Zbl 1112.62082)] have proposed a promising data-driven method to calibrate such criteria whose penalties are known up to a multiplicative factor: the “slope heuristics”. Theoretical works validate this heuristic method in some situations and several papers report a promising practical behavior in various frameworks. The purpose of this work is twofold. First, an introduction to the slope heuristics and an overview of the theoretical and practical results about it are presented. Second, we focus on the practical difficulties occurring for applying the slope heuristics. A new practical approach is carried out and compared to the standard dimension jump method. All the practical solutions discussed in this paper in different frameworks are implemented and brought together in a Matlab graphical user interface called CAPUSHE. Supplemental Materials containing further information and an additional application, the CAPUSHE package and the datasets presented in this paper, are available on the journal Web site.
