High-derivative parametric enhancements of nonparametric curve estimators

Hall, Peter; Cheng, Ming-Yen; Turlach, B


We suggest a method for using parametric information to modify a nonparametric estimator at the level of relatively high-order derivatives. The technique represents an alternative to methods that first fit a parametric model and then adjust it. In particular, relative to a 'nonparametric estimator with a parametric start', our estimator is not biased by the differences between parametric and nonparametric fits to low-order derivatives, since we effectively remove all the parametric information...[Show more]
