An <i>L</i> <sub>2</sub>-boosting algorithm for estimation of a regression function from random design is presented, which consists of fitting repeatedly a function from a fixed nonlinear function space to the residuals of the data by least squares and by defining the estimate as a linear combination of the resulting least squares estimates. Splitting of… (More)

Partitioning estimates of the conditional distribution are constructed and results concerning consistency and rate of convergence of the integrated total variation error of… (More)
