This is a research monograph rather than a practical book or, even less, a textbook. For the latter, your needs are better served by Ramsay and Silverman (2005a, b). In a sense, the present book is heavily biased toward statistical theory and is weak on practice and applications. For the theory aspect, the present book does bring something new and, indeed, some novel theoretical investigations into the kinds of functional data problems not addressed by Ramsay and Silverman (2005a). While Ramsay… Expand

Functional Data Smoothing Methods and Their Applications
TLDR
This dissertation showed that using the Bayesian smoothing method on the raw curves prior to carrying out the corresponding applications provides very competitive statistical inference and an- it is proved to adapt more flexibly to highly irregular curves. Expand
The bbefkr Package
Recent advances in computer recording and storing technology have markedly increased the presence of functional data, whose graphical representation can be infinite-dimensional curve, image or shape.Expand
Robust Statistical Methods for the Functional Logistic Model by Melody B. Denhere
Over the last decade or so, a lot of interest has emerged in the field of functional data analysis. This interest spans from a broad spectrum of fields such as brain imaging studies, bio-metrics,Expand
Principal differential analysis with a continuous covariate: low-dimensional approximations for functional data
TLDR
PDA is useful for obtaining low-dimensional approximations to the data curves whether or not the interpretation of the annihilating LDO is intuitive or obvious from the context of the data. Expand
Single and multiple index functional regression models with nonparametric link
Fully nonparametric methods for regression from functional data have poor accuracy from a statistical viewpoint, reflecting the fact that their convergence rates are slower than nonparametric ratesExpand
ON THE VALIDITY OF THE BOOTSTRAP IN NONPARAMETRIC FUNCTIONAL REGRESSION
We consider the functional nonparametric regression model Y = r(X)+", where the response Y is univariate, X is a functional covariate (i.e. valued in some infinite-dimensional space), and the error "Expand
AN INTRODUCTION TO THEORETICAL PROPERTIES OF FUNCTIONAL PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS
The term “functional data” refers to data where each observation is a curve, a surface, or a hypersurface, as opposed to a point or a finite-dimensional vector. Functional data are intrinsicallyExpand
Bootstrap and inference when both response and regressor are functional
We consider a nonparametric regression model where the response Y and the covariate X are both functional (i.e. valued in some infinite-dimensional space). We define a kernel type estimator of theExpand
Regression when both response and predictor are functions
TLDR
The theoretical advances are completed by some simulation studies showing both the practical feasibility of the method and the good behavior for finite sample sizes of the kernel estimator and of the bootstrap procedures to build functional pseudo-confidence area. Expand
Peter Hall, functional data analysis and random objects
Functional data analysis has become a major branch of nonparametric statistics and is a fast evolving field. Peter Hall has made fundamental contributions to this area and its theoreticalExpand

Nonparametric Regression with Singular Design
Theories of nonparametric regression are usually based on the assumption that the design density exists. However, in some applications such as those involving high-dimensional or chaotic time seriesExpand
