Nonlinear regression modeling via regularized wavelets and smoothing parameter selection


  • Fujii, Toru
  • Konishi, Sadanori


We introduce regularized wavelet-based methods for nonlinear regression modeling when design points are not equally spaced. A crucial issue in the model building process is a choice of tuning parameters that control the smoothness of a fitted curve. We derive model selection criteria from an information-theoretic and also Bayesian approaches. Monte Carlo simulations are conducted to examine the performance of the proposed wavelet-based modeling technique.
