Abstract

We develop a nonparametric test, based on kernel smoothers, in order to decide whether some covariates could be suppressed in a multidimensional nonparametric regression study. We give the asymptotic distribution of the statistic involved in our test, under a general dependence assumption on the sample that allows for application to time series prediction.
