Mathematically oriented yet rich in applications, this monograph discusses not only the analysis of single curves, but also of samples of curves--a topic of both practical and theoretical interest. Rapid progress in recent years with respect to bandwidth choice, local polynomials, multidimensional designs, and algorithms make the topics in the first section both timely and valuable. Much of the material in the last two sections appears here in book form for the first time. Written on a level accessible to graduate students in statistics and mathematics, this will be an important reference for a broad audience of researchers and statisticians working in many fields of applications.
