In this project up to six basic research lines in statistical mathematics are planned, related to new methods and/or new results in semiparametric and nonparametric estimation and inference techniques. These are:

  • New results in nonparametric curve estimation with dependent data, under censoring and truncation conditions.
  • Advances in high-dimensional censored regression.
  • Advances in nonparametric estimation and inference in multi-state models.
  • New goodness-of-fit tests based on smoothing.
  • Advances in ROC curves.
  • New results and applications in local polynomial regression and GAM.

All these methodological advances are oriented to solve specific problems arising from biomedical sciences, economy, and biology.
