# A SPLINE-ASSISTED SEMIPARAMETRIC APPROACH TO NONPARAMETRIC MEASUREMENT ERROR MODELS

@article{Jiang2018ASS, title={A SPLINE-ASSISTED SEMIPARAMETRIC APPROACH TO NONPARAMETRIC MEASUREMENT ERROR MODELS}, author={Fei Jiang and Yanyuan Ma}, journal={arXiv: Statistics Theory}, year={2018} }

Nonparametric estimation of the probability density function of a random variable measured with error is considered to be a difficult problem, in the sense that depending on the measurement error prop- erty, the estimation rate can be as slow as the logarithm of the sample size. Likewise, nonparametric estimation of the regression function with errors in the covariate suffers the same possibly slow rate. The traditional methods for both problems are based on deconvolution, where the slow…
