Generalized F-test for high dimensional regression coefficients of partially linear models

This paper proposes a test procedure for testing the regression coefficients in high dimensional partially linear models based on the F-statistic. In the partially linear model, the authors first estimate the unknown nonlinear component by some nonparametric methods and then generalize the F-statistic to test the regression coefficients under some regular conditions. During this procedure, the estimation of the nonlinear component brings much challenge to explore the properties of generalized F-test. The authors obtain some asymptotic properties of the generalized F-test in more general cases, including the asymptotic normality and the power of this test with p/n ∈ (0, 1) without normality assumption. The asymptotic result is general and by adding some constraint conditions we can obtain the similar conclusions in high dimensional linear models. Through simulation studies, the authors demonstrate good finite-sample performance of the proposed test in comparison with the theoretical results. The practical utility of our method is illustrated by a real data example.
