On sufficient dimension reduction for functional data: Inverse moment‐based methods

Early View

In this article, we present methods of sufficient dimension reduction (SDR) for functional data and organize them in a unified framework. The current existing methods for multivariate, functional data, functional response, and nonlinear SDR for functional data are illustrated in a way that they are naturally generalized. If a covariance operator is defined on an infinite‐dimensional space, the inverse of it is not bounded. Thus it is difficult to estimate and even impossible to apply the conventional results. We present solutions to resolve the inverse issue for the methods of functional SDR. Then we explain the functional SDR methods in three different scenarios: scalar‐on‐function, function‐on‐function, nonlinear SDR for function‐on‐function problem.
