Generalized varying coefficient models with unknown link function


  • C. N. Kuruwita
  • K. B. Kulasekera
  • C. M. Gallagher


We propose a new estimation method for generalized varying coefficient models where the link function is specified up to some smoothness conditions. Consistency and asymptotic normality of the estimated varying coefficient functions are established. Simulation results and a real data application demonstrate the usefulness of the new method.
