Semiparametric regression functionals. (English) Zbl 0818.62040
Summary: A regression method is developed for a general class of functionals. A semiparametric linear model is adopted, and the regression parameters are estimated by maximizing a profiled nonparametric or empirical likelihood based on a local estimate of the conditional distribution function. Simulated and real data examples are shown, including an application of quantile regression to censored survival data from a clinical trial for myeloma.
