Dear all,

We will have a new talk on our series of Statistics Seminar.

When:  Monday, Oct 18th, at 12:30pm

Where: Sherrerd 213,

  Prof. David Mason,  University of Delaware,

Title: "On Proving Consistency of Non-standard Kernel Estimators".


We will discuss general methods based on empirical process techniques  
to prove uniform in bandwidth consistency of a class of non-standard  
kernel-type function estimators. Examples include biased corrected  
kernel density and Nadaraya-Watson function estimators, projection  
pursuit regression and conditional distribution estimation and kernel  
estimation of the density of linear regression residuals. Our results  
are useful to establish uniform consistency of data-driven bandwidth  
kernel-type function estimators.
