Empirical Likelihood for Nonparametric Models Under Linear Process Errors


Author to whom correspondence should be addressed.


In this paper, we study the construction of confidence intervals for a nonparametric regression function under linear process errors by using the blockwise technique. It is shown that the blockwise empirical likelihood (EL) ratio statistic is asymptotically math formula distributed. The result is used to obtain EL based confidence intervals for the nonparametric regression function. The finite-sample performance of the method is evaluated through a simulation study.
