Regression Splines for Multivariate Additive Modeling

  • Jean-François Durand
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


Four additive spline extensions of some linear multiresponse regression methods are presented. Two of them are defined in this paper and their properties are compared with those of two other recently devised methods. Dimension reduction aspects and quality of the regression are discussed and illustrated on examples.
