Using bimodal kernel for inference in nonparametric regression with correlated errors
For nonparametric regression model with fixed design, it is well known that obtaining a correct bandwidth is difficult when errors are correlated. Various methods of bandwidth selection have been proposed, but their successful implementation critically depends on a tuning procedure which requires accurate information about error correlation. Unfortunately, such information is usually hard to obtain since errors are not observable. In this article a new bandwidth selector based on the use of a bimodal kernel is proposed and investigated. It is shown that the new bandwidth selector is quite useful for the tuning procedures of various other methods. Furthermore, the proposed bandwidth selector itself proves to be quite effective when the errors are severely correlated.
