Title: Sufficient dimension folding for regressions with matrix- or array-valued predictors
Authors: Wenhui Sheng - Marquette University (United States) [presenting]
Abstract: A new sufficient dimension folding method is proposed for regressions in which the predictors are matrix- or array- valued. The method is model-free and avoids strong assumptions on the distribution of $X$. It does not require kernel or smoothing techniques, neither does it require choosing tuning parameters, such as the number of slices. Moreover, it can deal with both scalar response and multivariate response scenarios. A bootstrap method is introduced to estimate the structural dimension. Asymptotic properties of the estimator is studied. Simulations and real data analysis support the efficiency and effectiveness of the method.
