Abstract

Consider the regression model Yi = X'iβ + g(ti) + ei for i = 1, ⋯, n. Here g is an unknown Holder continuous function of known order p in R, β is a k × 1 parameter vector to be estimated and ei is an unobserved disturbance. Such a model is often encountered in situations in which there is little real knowledge about the nature of g. A piecewise polynomial gn is proposed to approximate g. The least-squares estimator $\hat\beta$ is obtained based on the model Yi = X'iβ + gn(ti) + ei. It is shown that $\hat\beta$ can achieve the usual parametric rates n-1/2 with the smallest possible asymptotic variance for the case that X and T are correlated.
