Main themes
Main themes The topics treated during this course are : 1. Nonparametric estimation of a distribution function 2. Nonparametric estimation of a density function : the kernel method 3. Nonparametric estimation of a regression function : - kernel estimation - local polynomial estimation - spline estimation The material will essentially be treated from an applied point of view of methodology. The student will study software applications of the proposed methods.
Aims

Second course of general education in nonparametric statistics, which mainly focuses on smoothing methods.
