Estimating the error distribution function in nonparametric regression with multivariate covariates. (English) Zbl 1158.62032
Summary: We consider nonparametric regression models with multivariate covariates and estimate the regression curve by an undersmoothed local polynomial smoother. The resulting residual-based empirical distribution function is shown to differ from the error-based empirical distribution function by the density times the average of the errors, up to a uniformly negligible remainder term. This result implies a functional central limit theorem for the residual-based empirical distribution function.
