Bootstrap selection of bandwidth and confidence bands for nonparametric regression

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A bootstrap method is developed to estimate the average squared error of a kernel based nonparametric regression estimator for a given bandwidth. This estimated average squared error is then minimised over the bandwidth to produce a regression estimate. Locally adaptive smoothing and simultaneous confidence bands may be obtained from this bootstrap method.
