Functional regression with scalar response using non-parametric kernel estimation

Computes functional regression between functional explanatory variables and scalar response using kernel estimation.

Keywords
regression
Usage
fregre.np(
  fdataobj,
  y,
  h = NULL,
  Ker = AKer.norm,
  metric = metric.lp,
  type.S = S.NW,
  par.S = list(w = 1),
  ...
)
Arguments
fdataobj

fdata class object.

y

Scalar response with length n.

h

Bandwidth, h>0. Default argument values are provided as the 5%--quantile of the distance between fdataobj curves, see h.default.

Ker

Type of asymmetric kernel used, by default asymmetric normal kernel.

metric

Metric function, by default metric.lp.

type.S

Type of smothing matrix S. By default S is calculated by Nadaraya-Watson kernel estimator (S.NW).

par.S

List of parameters for type.S: w, the weights.

Arguments to be passed for metric.lp o other metric function.

Details

The non-parametric functional regression model can be written as follows $$y_i =r(X_i)+\epsilon_i$$ where the unknown smooth real function \(r\) is estimated using kernel estimation by means of $$\hat{r}(X)=\frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n}{K(h^{-1}d(X,X_{i}))y_{i}}}{\sum_{i=1}^{n}{K(h^{-1}d(X,X_{i}))}}$$ where \(K\) is an kernel function (see Ker argument), h is the smoothing parameter and \(d\) is a metric or a semi-metric (see metric argument).

The distance between curves is calculated using the metric.lp although any other semimetric could be used (see semimetric.basis or semimetric.NPFDA functions). The kernel is applied to a metric or semi-metrics that provides non-negative values, so it is common to use asymmetric kernels. Different asymmetric kernels can be used, see Kernel.asymmetric.
