Project description

Tradional regression models are used to analyse the conditional mean of the response variable as a function of covariates and factors. In this project, a nonparametric framework will be developped in which informative nonparametric tests are studied for testing effects of covariates on several moments simultaneously (dispersion, skewness, …).
