## Contents

• Non-parametric density estimation, core estimator, projection estimator, upper barriers for point by point, uniform and integrated risk
• Lower bounds and optimal rates
• Lepski's scheme and adaptivity
• Nonparametric regression, local polynomial estimators
• Model in white noise, Pinsker estimation and Pinsker constant
• Wavelet estimation

## Qualification Goals

The students shall

• get an insight into a current research area of nonparametric statistics,
• acquire the basic techniques within the field of nonparametric statistics,
• practice mathematical methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof methods),
• improve their oral communication skills in the recitation classes by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.

## Prerequisites

Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den Basismodulen und im Vertiefungsmodul Mathematische Statistik vermittelt werden.
