The article presents a mathematical analysis on how to obtain an estimation of regression functions. It was suggested that the quality of optimal estimates of regression functions for the case in which additional boundness assumptions of the form of absolute y < M are imposed on the certain measure. Also presented are the theorems and equations that provides a solution in obtaining an estimation of regression function with positive constant.

Confounder detection methods often compare regression coefficients obtained from "crude"...

Under certain regularity conditions, the weak consistency and asymptotic distribution of the proposed estimators are obtained. If the errors...
