Rates of convergence for partitioning and nearest neighbor regression estimates with unbounded data
AbstractEstimation of regression functions from independent and identically distributed data is considered. The L2 error with integration with respect to the design measure is used as an error criterion. Usually in the analysis of the rate of convergence of estimates besides smoothness assumptions on the regression function and moment conditions on Y also boundedness assumptions on X are made. In this article we consider partitioning and nearest neighbor estimates and show that by replacing the boundedness assumption on X by a proper moment condition the same rate of convergence can be shown as for bounded data.
