The Integrated Mean Squared Error of Series Regression and a Rosenthal Hilbert-Space Inequality

Econometric Theory (2015)


This paper develops unifom approximations for the integrated mean squared error (IMSE) of nonparametric series regression estimators, including both least-squares and averaging least-squares estimators. To develop these approximations, we also generalize an important probability inequality of Rosenthal (1970, 1972) to the case of Hilbert-space valued random variables.
