The asymptotic distribution of the isotonic regression estimator over a general countable pre-ordered set
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We study the isotonic regression estimator over a general countable pre-ordered set. We obtain the limiting distribution of the estimator and study its properties. It is proved that, under some general assumptions, the limiting distribution of the isotonized estimator is given by the concatenation of the separate isotonic regressions of the certain subvectors of an unrestrecred estimator’s asymptotic distribution. Also, we show that the isotonization preserves the rate of convergence of the underlying estimator. We apply these results to the problems of estimation of a bimonotone regression function and estimation of a bimonotone probability mass function.
