# Nonparametric Functional Data Analysis: Theory And Practice

@article{Lu2007NonparametricFD, title={Nonparametric Functional Data Analysis: Theory And Practice}, author={Z. Q. John Lu}, journal={Technometrics}, year={2007}, volume={49}, pages={226 - 226} }

This is a research monograph rather than a practical book or, even less, a textbook. For the latter, your needs are better served by Ramsay and Silverman (2005a, b). In a sense, the present book is heavily biased toward statistical theory and is weak on practice and applications. For the theory aspect, the present book does bring something new and, indeed, some novel theoretical investigations into the kinds of functional data problems not addressed by Ramsay and Silverman (2005a). While Ramsay… Expand

ON THE VALIDITY OF THE BOOTSTRAP IN NONPARAMETRIC FUNCTIONAL REGRESSION

- 2008

We consider the functional nonparametric regression model Y = r(X)+", where the response Y is univariate, X is a functional covariate (i.e. valued in some infinite-dimensional space), and the error "… Expand

AN INTRODUCTION TO THEORETICAL PROPERTIES OF FUNCTIONAL PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS

- 2008

The term “functional data” refers to data where each observation is a curve, a surface, or a hypersurface, as opposed to a point or a finite-dimensional vector. Functional data are intrinsically… Expand

Bootstrap and inference when both response and regressor are functional

- Mathematics
- 2010

We consider a nonparametric regression model where the response Y and the covariate X are both functional (i.e. valued in some infinite-dimensional space). We define a kernel type estimator of the… Expand

Regression when both response and predictor are functions

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- J. Multivar. Anal.
- 2012

The theoretical advances are completed by some simulation studies showing both the practical feasibility of the method and the good behavior for finite sample sizes of the kernel estimator and of the bootstrap procedures to build functional pseudo-confidence area. Expand
