hi all

i have a another stats question.

i would like to solve the following question:

y(i)=a+b*x(i)+e(i)

i.e. estimate a and b (they should be fixed) but i
dont want to specify

the standard density to the straight line.

this can be done using kernel regression. the fitted
line is however

fitted locally. does anyone have a reference that will
help me with my

problem.

i am still new to kernels/kernel regression and would
like to get into

the subject.

- Deviation is considered normal
- We feel complete and sufficient
- We are 'mean' lovers
- Statisticians do it discretely and continuously
- We are right 95% of the time
- We can legally comment on someone's posterior distribution
- We may not be normal, but we are transformable
- We never have to say we are certain
- We are honestly significantly different
- No one wants our jobs
