Testing for equality between two transformations of random variables

  title={Testing for equality between two transformations of random variables},
  author={Mohamed Boutahar and Denys Pommeret},
  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
Consider two random variables contaminated by two unknown transformations. The aim of this paper is to test the equality of those transformations. Two cases are distinguished: first, the two random variables have known distributions. Second, they are unknown but observed before contaminations. We propose a nonparametric test statistic based on empirical cumulative distribution functions. Monte Carlo studies are performed to analyze the level and the power of the test. An illustration is…

Optimal Rates of Convergence for Deconvolving a Density

Abstract Suppose that the sum of two independent random variables X and Z is observed, where Z denotes measurement error and has a known distribution, and where the unknown density f of X is to be

Adaptive estimation for inverse problems with noisy operators

Consider an inverse problem with random noise where we want to estimate a function f. Moreover, suppose that the operator A that we need to invert is not completely known: we know its eigenfunctions


This paper deals with the problem of estimating a density based on observations which are contaminated by a normally distributed error whose variance is unknown. In the case of a completely unknown

Applied Nonparametric Regression

Applied Nonparametric Regression is the first book to bring together in one place the techniques for regression curve smoothing involving more than one variable and argues that all smoothing methods are based on a local averaging mechanism and can be seen as essentially equivalent to kernel smoothing.

A Fourier Approach to Nonparametric Deconvolution of a Density Estimate

We consider the problem of constructing a nonparametric estimate of a probability density function h from independent random samples of observations from densities a and f, when a represents the
