Spectral View of Wavelets and Nonlinear Regression

  • J. S. Marron
Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 141)


This chapter reviews one of the most widespread uses of wavelets in statistics: nonlinear nonparametric regression. Simple insight into the utility and power of the wavelet approach comes from a discrete spectral analysis point of view. Some of the ideas here are the same as some introduced in Chapter 1, but the different viewpoint is intended to give additional insights.
