ABSTRACT Quantile regression as an alternative to conditional mean regression (i.e., least-square regression) is widely used in many areas. It can be used to study the covariate effects on the entire response distribution by fitting quantile regression models at multiple different quantiles or even fitting the entire regression quantile process. However, estimating the regression quantile process is inherently difficult because the induced conditional quantile function needs to be monotone at… 
Simultaneous Spline Quantile Regression Under Shape Constraints
This paper proposes simultaneous spline quantile regression which considers the similarity between the adjacent quantiles and enforces the non-crossing and one shape (non-decreasing/non-increasing/convex/concave) constraints.
Bayesian non-parametric quantile process regression and estimation of marginal quantile effects.
A Bayesian non-parametric method to simultaneously estimate non-crossing, non-linear quantile curves and expands the conditional distribution function of the response in I-spline basis functions where the covariate-dependent coefficients are modeled using neural networks.
Functional Data Analysis between Two Random Variables by Multilevel Monotone Splines
This work proposes multilevel spline smoothing which considers the similarity between the adjacent quantile lines and can enforce non-crossing and monotone properties and make the most of quantile regression.
On mean decomposition for summarizing conditional distributions
We propose a summary measure defined as the expected value of a random variable over disjoint subsets of its support that are specified by a given grid of proportions and consider its use in a
A Spatial Panel Quantile Model with Unobserved Heterogeneity
This paper introduces a spatial panel quantile model with unobserved heterogeneity. The proposed model is capable of capturing high-dimensional cross-sectional dependence and allows heterogeneous

Abstract This article introduces a new procedure for analyzing the quantile co-movement of a large number of financial time series based on a large-scale panel data model with factor structures. The
Remaining useful life prediction based on degradation signals using monotonic B-splines with infinite support
A non-parametric approach to modeling and prognosis of degradation signals using B-splines in a mixed effects setting is proposed based on augmenting B- Spline basis functions with functions of infinite support to deal with the issue of truncated historical degradation signals.
Conditional Kernel Density Estimation Considering Autocorrelation for Renewable Energy Probabilistic Modeling
A novel conditional density estimation method to model the distribution of power generation under various weather conditions that explicitly accounted for the temporal dependence in the data stream and used an iterative procedure to reduce the bias in conventional density estimation.
Quantile Process with Applications : Chirp Signal Model
The parameters in the well-known chirp signal model controls the frequency fluctuations of the signals, and consequently, the estimation of the parameters has received considerable attention in the


P-splines quantile regression estimation in varying coefficient models
Quantile regression, as a generalization of median regression, has been widely used in statistical modeling. To allow for analyzing complex data situations, several flexible regression models have
Quantile regression with varying coefficients
Quantile regression provides a framework for modeling statistical quantities of interest other than the conditional mean. The regression methodology is well developed for linear models, but less so
Shrinkage estimation of varying covariate effects based on quantile regression
This work proposes a shrinkage approach by adopting a novel uniform adaptive LASSO penalty that can consistently identify the true model (uniformly across quantiles) and achieve the oracle estimation efficiency.
Non-crossing quantile regression via doubly penalized kernel machine
A new non-crossing quantile regression method using doubly penalized kernel machine (DPKM) which uses heteroscedastic location-scale model as basic model and estimates both location and scale functions simultaneously by kernel machines is proposed.
Nonparametric Quantile Estimation
A nonparametric version of a quantile estimator is presented, which can be obtained by solving a simple quadratic programming problem and uniform convergence statements and bounds on the quantile property of the estimator are provided.
Noncrossing quantile regression curve estimation.
A simple constrained version of quantile regression is proposed to avoid the crossing problem for both linear and nonparametric quantile curves.
Quantile Curves without Crossing
Abstract Conventional regression techniques focus on the conditional averages, but often of more interest are lower or upper conditional quantiles. A more informative description of the relationship
A Bayesian Nonparametric Approach to Inference for Quantile Regression
We develop a Bayesian method for nonparametric model–based quantile regression. The approach involves flexible Dirichlet process mixture models for the joint distribution of the response and the

Censored quantile regression processes under dependence and penalization
We consider quantile regression processes from censored data under dependent data structures and derive a uniform Bahadur representation for those processes. We also consider cases where the
