Testing additivity in nonparametric regression under random censorship


  • Debbarh, Mohammed
  • Viallon, Vivian


In this paper, we are concerned with nonparametric estimation of the multivariate regression function in the presence of right censored data. More precisely, we propose a statistic which is shown to be asymptotically normally distributed under the additive assumption, and which could then be used to test for additivity in the multivariate censored regression setting.
