# Nonparametric Estimation of the Peak Location in a Response Surface

@inproceedings{Facer2003NonparametricEO, title={Nonparametric Estimation of the Peak Location in a Response Surface}, author={M. R. Facer and H. M{\"u}ller}, year={2003} }

We explore a nonparametric version of response surface analysis. Estimates for the location where maximum response occurs are proposed and their asymptotic distribution is investigated. The proposed estimates are based on kernel and local least squares methods. We construct asymptotic confidence regions for the location. The methods are illustrated for the two-dimensional case with AIDS incidence data.
