   I have a problem with the multivariante regression function mvr (PLS    package) with leave-one-out validation.    In the value ...$validation there are the $PRESSs listed. I found in the    literature PRESS is the sum of squares of observed minus predicted. Well, I    don't understand how PRESS can grow with a better model (which indicated by    more the use of more latent variables and a higher R-squared).    In fact my curve plotting the PRESS against the number of latent variables    has a minimum, which is another point I don't really understand. I apologize    if my questions are silly, but I am a newbie in this context.    I just don't know get it how the PRESS value is calculated and I would    kindly appreciate it if somebody could help me with this topic.    Best wishes,
