       摘要:The global smoothing method based on polynomial splines is a popular technique for nonparametric regression estimation and has received great attention in the literature. However, it is tremendously challenging to obtain local asymptotic properties of the polynomial spline estimators and to make inference for the regression functions. We develop a general theory of local asymptotics for the polynomial spline estimation of partly linear additive Cox models. We obtain a uniform Bahadur representation of and design-adaptive asymptotic normality of the resulting nonparametric estimators. Furthermore, we propose a distance-based statistic for specification tests of the additive components and establish the limiting distribution of the test statistic. We propose a bootstrap procedure to calculate the p-value of the above test statistic and prove its consistency. Based on the polynomial-spline estimation, we also introduce a two-step estimation method, which possesses an oracle property in the sense that any additive component could be estimated as if other additive components were known. All of the above local asymptotics and testing results are also established for this two-step procedure. Simulations demonstrate nice finite sample performance of the proposed procedure. Analysis of the Framingham Heart Study data illustrates the use of our methodology.
