Central limit theorems for the L_p-error of smooth isotonic estimators

by   Hendrik P. Lopuhaä, et al.
Delft University of Technology

We investigate the asymptotic behavior of the L_p-distance between a monotone function on a compact interval and a smooth estimator of this function. Our main result is a central limit theorem for the L_p-error of smooth isotonic estimators obtained by smoothing a Grenander-type estimator or isotonizing the ordinary kernel estimator. As a preliminary result we establish a similar result for ordinary kernel estimators. Our results are obtained in a general setting, which includes estimation of a monotone density, regression function and hazard rate. We also perform a simulation study for testing monotonicity on the basis of the L_2-distance between the kernel estimator and the smoothed Grenander-type estimator.
