this paper, weintroduce nonlinear regularized wavelet estimators for estimating nonparametric regression functions when sampling points are not uniformly spaced. The approach can apply readily to many other statistical contexts. Various new penalty functions are proposed. The hardthresholding and softthresholding estimators of Donoho and Johnstone (1994) are specic members of nonlinear regularized wavelet estimators. They correspond to the lower and upper bound of a class of the penalized leastsquares estimators. Necessary conditions for penalty functions are given for regularized estimators to possess thresholding properties. Oracle inequalities and universal thresholding parameters are obtained for a large class of penalty functions. The sampling properties of nonlinear regularized wavelet estimators are established, and are shown to be adaptively minimax. To eciently solve penalized leastsquares problems, Nonlinear Regularized Sobolev Interpolators (NRSI) are proposed as initial estimators, which are shown to have good sampling properties. The NRSI is further ameliorated by Regularized OneStep Estimators (ROSE), which are the onestep estimators of the penalized leastsquares problems using the NRSI as initial estimators. Two other approaches, the graduated nonconvexity algorithm and wavelet networks, are also introduced to handle penalized leastsquares problems. The newly introduced approaches are also illustrated by a few numerical examples. ####### ########## ## ########## ########### ## ############# ## ####### ######################### ##### ######## ##### ## ####### ######## ### ## ########## ########## ## ########### ########## ## ########### ### ######## ## ########## ### ### ####### ########## ## #### ##### ##### ########### ######### ######### ## ###...

In this paper, we combine Donoho and Johnstone's Wavelet Shrinkage denoising technique (known as WaveShrink) with Breiman's nonnegative garrote. We show that the nonnegative garrote shrinkage estimate enjoys the same asymptotic convergence rate as the hard and the soft shrinkage estimates. Simulations are used to demonstrate that garrote shrinkage offers advantages over both hard shrinkage (generally smaller meansquare error and less sensitivity to small perturbations in the data) and soft shrinkage (generally smaller bias and overall meansquareerror). The minimax thresholds for the nonnegative garrote are derived and the threshold selection procedure based on Stein's Unbiased Risk Estimate (SURE) is studied. We also propose a threshold selection procedure based on combining Coifman and Donoho's cyclespinning and SURE. The procedure is called SPINSURE. We use examples to show that SPINSURE is more stable than SURE: smaller standard deviation and smaller range. Key Words and Phra...

In recent years there has been a considerable development in the use of wavelet methods in statistics. As a result, we are now at the stage where it is reasonable to consider such methods to be another standard tool of the applied statistician rather than a research novelty. With that in mind, this article is intended to give a relatively accessible introduction to standard wavelet analysis and to provide an up to date review of some common uses of wavelet methods in statistical applications. It is primarily orientated towards the general statistical audience who may be involved in analysing data where the use of wavelets might be e ective, rather than to researchers already familiar with the eld. Given that objective, we do not emphasise mathematical generality or rigour in our exposition of wavelets and we restrict our discussion to the more frequently employed wavelet methods in statistics. We provide extensive references where the ideas and concepts discussed can be followed up in...

Recently there has been significant development in the use of wavelet methods in various data mining processes. However, there has been written no comprehensive survey available on the topic. The goal of this is paper to fill the void. First, the paper presents a highlevel datamining framework that reduces the overall process into smaller components. Then applications of wavelets for each component are reviewd. The paper concludes by discussing the impact of wavelets on data mining research and outlining potential future research directions and applications. 1.

Wavelets have motivated development of a host of new ideas in nonparametric regression smoothing. Here we apply the tool of exact risk analysis, to understand the small sample behavior of wavelet estimators, and thus to check directly the conclusions suggested by asymptotics. Comparisons between some wavelet bases, and also between hard and soft thresholding are given from several viewpoints. Our results provide insight as to why the viewpoints and conclusions of Donoho and Johnstone differ from those of Hall and Patil. 1 Introduction In a series of papers, Donoho and Johnstone (1992 [9],1994a [10], 1995 [13]) and Donoho, Johnstone, Kerkyacharian and Picard (1995) [14] developed nonlinear wavelet shrinkage technology in nonparametric regression. For other work relating wavelets and nonparametric estimation, see Doukhan (1988) [15], Kerkyacharian and Picard, (1992) [21], Antoniadis (1994) [1] and Antoniadis, Gregoire and McKeague (1994) [2]. These papers have both introduced a new clas...

Cumulants are useful in studying nonlinear phenomena and in developing (approximate) statistical properties of quantities computed from random process data. Wavelet analysis is a powerful tool for the approximation and estimation of curves and surfaces. This work considers both wavelets and cumulants, developing some sampling properties of linear wavelet fits to a signal in the presence of additive stationary noise via the calculus of cumulants. Of some concern is the construction of approximate confidence bounds around a fit. Some extensions to spatial processes, irregularly observed processes and long memory processes are indicated.

We consider the problem of estimating an unknown function f in a regression setting with random design. Instead of expanding the function on a regular wavelet basis, we expand it on the basis jk (G), j, k} warped with the design. This allows to perform a very stable and computable thresholding algorithm. We investigate the properties of this new basis. In particular, we prove that if the design has a property of Muckenhoupt type, this new basis has a behavior quite similar to a regular wavelet basis. This enables us to prove that the associated thresholding procedure achieves rates of convergence which have been proved to be minimax in the uniform design case.

This paper describes a wavelet method for the estimation of density and hazard rate functions from randomly right censored data. We adopt a nonparametric approach in assuming that the density and hazard rate have no specific parametric form. The method is based on dividing the time axis into a dyadic number of intervals and then counting the number of events within each interval. The number of events and the survival function of the observations are then separately smoothed over time via linear wavelet smoothers, and then the hazard rate function estimators are obtained by taking the ratio. We prove that the estimators possess pointwise and global mean square consistency, obtain the best possible asymptotic MISE convergence rate and are also asymptotically normally distributed. We also describe simulation experiments that show these estimators are reasonably reliable in practice. The method is illustrated with two real examples. The first uses survival time data for patients with liver...
