Amethod of generalized regression that blends tree-structured nonparametric regression and adaptive recursive partitioning with maximum likelihood estimation is studied. The function estimate is a piecewise polynomial, with the pieces determined by the terminal nodes of a binary decision tree. The decision tree is constructed by recursively partitioning theâ€¦Â (More)
