Sieve: Nonparametric Estimation by the Method of Sieves

Performs multivariate nonparametric regression/classification by the method of sieves (using orthogonal basis). The method is suitable for moderate high-dimensional features (dimension < 100). The l1-penalized sieve estimator, a nonparametric generalization of Lasso, is adaptive to the feature dimension with provable theoretical guarantees. We also include a nonparametric stochastic gradient descent estimator, Sieve-SGD, for online or large scale batch problems. Details of the methods can be found in: <doi:10.48550/arXiv.2206.02994> <doi:10.48550/arXiv.2104.00846><doi:10.48550/arXiv.2310.12140>.
