DESCRIPTION:We propose a new perspective on functional regress
ion with a predictor process via the concept of ma
nifold that is intrinsically finite-dimensional an
d embedded in an infinite-dimensional functional s
pace\, where the predictor is contaminated with di
screte/noisy measurements. By a novel method of
functional local linear manifold smoothing\, we ac
hieve a polynomial rate of convergence that adapts
to the intrinsic manifold dimension and the level
of sampling/noise contamination with a phase tran
sition phenomenon depending on their interplay. Th
is is in contrast to the logarithmic convergence r
ate in the literature of functional nonparametric
regression. We demonstrate that the proposed metho
d enjoys favorable finite sample performance relat
ive to commonly used methods via simulated and rea
l data examples. (Joint with Zhenhua Lin)
