Original Paper


Using a wavelet basis, we establish in this paper upper bounds of wavelet estimation on \( L^{p}({\mathbb {R}}^{d}) \) risk of regression functions with strong mixing data for \( 1\le p<\infty \). In contrast to the independent case, these upper bounds have different analytic formulae for \(p\in [1, 2]\) and \(p\in (2, +\infty )\). For \(p=2\), it turns out that our result reduces to a theorem of Chaubey et al. (J Nonparametr Stat 25:53–71, 2013); and for \(d=1\) and \(p=2\), it becomes the corresponding theorem of Chaubey and Shirazi (Commun Stat Theory Methods 44:885–899, 2015).
