  journal={arXiv: Statistics Theory},
We establish minimax optimal rates of convergence for nonparametric estimation in functional ANOVA models when data from first-order partial derivatives are available. Our results reveal that partial derivatives can improve convergence rates for function estimation with deterministic or random designs. In particular, for full $d$-interaction models, the optimal rates with first-order partial derivatives on $p$ covariates are identical to those for $(d-p)$-interaction models without partial… 
Efficient estimation of smoothing spline with exact shape constraints
The proposed method is able to establish a sufficient and necessary condition for transforming the exact shape constraints to a finite number of constraints, leading to efficient estimation of the shape constrained functions.


Nonparametric least squares estimation in derivative families
Nonparametric estimation when data on derivatives are available
We consider settings where data are available on a nonparametric function and various partial derivatives. Such circumstances arise in practice, for example in the joint estimation of cost and input

The quick optimal rate of the TPS-ANOVA model makes it very preferable in high-dimensional function estimation, and many properties of the tensor product space of Sobolev-Hilbert spaces are given.
Optimum Designs in Regression Problems
0. Summary. Extending the results of Kiefer and Wolfowitz [10], [11], methods are obtained for characterizing and computing optimum regression designs in various settings, and examples are given
Derivative Observations in Gaussian Process Models of Dynamic Systems
This paper improves dramatically the computational efficiency of Gaussian process models for dynamic system identification, by summarising large quantities of near-equilibrium data by a handful of linearisations, reducing the training set size.
Asymptotic Analysis of Penalized Likelihood and Related Estimators
A general approach to the first order asymptotic analysis ofpenalized likelihood and related estimators is described. The method gives expansions for the systematic and random error. Asymptotic
Parameter estimation for differential equations: a generalized smoothing approach
A new method that uses noisy measurements on a subset of variables to estimate the parameters defining a system of non‐linear differential equations, based on a modification of data smoothing methods along with a generalization of profiled estimation is described.
Evaluating derivatives - principles and techniques of algorithmic differentiation, Second Edition
This second edition has been updated and expanded to cover recent developments in applications and theory, including an elegant NP completeness argument by Uwe Naumann and a brief introduction to scarcity, a generalization of sparsity.
Bayesian design and analysis of computer experiments: Use of derivatives in surface prediction
This article is concerned with the problem of predicting a deterministic response function yo over a multidimensional domain T, given values of yo and all of its first derivatives at a set of design
