## A global measure of risk for kernel estimators in Nikolski classes

Photos of Sergey Nikolskii from The Russian Academy of Sciences The MSE  gives an error of the estimator $latex {\hat{p}_{n}}&fg=000000$ at an arbitrary point $latex {x_{0}}&fg=000000$, but it is worth to study a global risk for $latex {\hat{p} _{n}}&fg=000000$. The mean integrated squared error (MISE) is an important global measure, $latex \displaystyle \mathrm{MISE}\triangleq\mathop{\mathbb E}_{p}\int\left(\hat{p} _{n}(x)-p(x)\right)^{2}dx &fg=000000$ […]

## Kernel density estimation

I will make a summary of ideas about nonparametric estimation, including some basics results to develop more advanced theory later. In the first post  we talk something about the density estimation and the nonparametric regression. Later, in posts about histogram (I,II,III,IV) , we saw how the histogram is a nonparametric estimator and we studied its […]

## Density Estimation by Histograms (Part IV)

Today we will apply the ideas of the others post by a simple example. Before, we are going to answer the question of the last week. What is exactly the $latex {h_{opt}}&fg=000000$ if we assume that $latex \displaystyle \displaystyle f(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \text{exp}\left(\frac{-x^2}{2}\right)? &fg=000000$ How $latex {f(x)}&fg=000000$ is the density of standard normal distribution. It is […]

## Density Estimation by Histograms (Part III)

Before to continue with today’s post we will answer the question of last week, Is it $latex {\hat{f}_{h}(x)}&fg=000000$ a consistent estimator? The answer is yes. Because convergence in mean squared implies convergence in probability.

## Density Estimation by Histograms (Part II)

We continue our presentation about the estimation of histograms and its statistical properties. Today we will start the theory for reducing the mean squared error. In order to study the statistical properties of $latex {\hat{f}_{h}(x)}&fg=000000$We will start introducing the concept of mean squared error (MSE) or quadratic risk. We define

## Density Estimation by Histograms (Part I)

We are going to introduce the histogram as a simple nonparametric density estimator.  I will divide this presentation in several posts for simplicity reasons. Let us $latex {X_1,\ldots,X_n}&fg=000000$ with pdf $latex {f}&fg=000000$. The histogram is the simplest nonparametric estimator of $latex {f}&fg=000000$.

## Importance of nonparametric statistics in regression.

I would like to start this blog with some basic ideas about density estimation and nonparametric regression. The study of the probability density function (pdf) is called nonparametric estimation. This kind of estimation can serve as a block building in nonparametric regression. The typical regression problem is setting as follows. Assume that we have a […]
