Abstract:

Summary. 

The paper introduces free-knot regression spline estimators for the mean and the variance components of a sample of curves. The asymptotic distribution of the mean estimator is derived, and asymptotic confidence bands are constructed. A comparative simulation study shows that free-knot splines estimate salient features of the functions (such as sharp peaks) more accurately than smoothing splines. This adaptive behaviour is also illustrated by an analysis of weather data.
