The Bernstein polynomial estimator of a smooth quantile function
An estimator of a smooth quantile function (q.f.) is constructed by Bernstein polynomial smoothing of the empirical quantile function. Asymptotic behavior of this estimator is demonstrated by a weighted Brownian bridge in-probability uniform approximation. Oscillation behavior of this estimator in finite samples is demonstrated by spectral decomposition and preservation of high-order convexity of the empirical quantile function.
