Specification Test For Conditional Distribution With Functional Data
In this paper we construct a statistic to test a specific form of the conditional density function. The main point of this work is to consider a functional explanatory variable, and the statistic is constructed following recent advances in nonparametric functional data analysis. The asymptotic behavior of the test statistic is studied under both the null hypothesis and some local alternative hypothesis. Then, the finite sample behavior of the method is studied through simulated examples. This paper is one of the first in the setting of nonparametric specification tests when functional data are involved.
