Basic concepts: A review on multiple linear regression, nonlinear regression, the bias-variance tradeo, integrated risk, integrated mean square error, kernels, loss functions, condence sets, curse of dimensionality. 2. Nonparametric regression: Linear smoothers, local regression, penalized regression, regularization, smoothing splines, wavelets, additive models, local likelihood and exponential families, regression trees, condence bands. 3. Nonparametric density estimation: histograms, kernel density estimation, local polynomials, wavelets, multivariate density estimation, condence bands. 4. Nonparametric intensity estimation: 5. Models assessments: cross validation, bandwidth selection, tuning parameters. 6. High dimensional problems: Variable selection in multiple regression, ridge regression, garrotte, lasso, LARS, Dantzig selector, adaptive lasso, elastic net, group lasso etc. Some References: 1.
