Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)

Instead of assuming a functional form that specifies how explanatory variables determine dependent variables, the functional form is mostly assumed to be in some way smooth, and the data are allowed to determine the appropriate functional form under weak restrictions.
