Fisher in the last decade of the nineteenth century and in the first decade of the twentieth century. For historical details we refer to Hald (1998), Farebrother (1999), and Stigler (1999). The principle of penalized modeling, in particular, smoothing splines, goes back to Whittaker (1923), Schoenberg (1964), and Reinsch (1967); see Wahba (1990) for additional references. The phrase “curse of dimensionality” is due to Bellman (1961). The concept of cross-validation in statistics was introduced by Lunts and Brailovsky (1967), Allen (1974) and M.

For a fixed function f : Rd → R, the L2 risk E{|f (X) − Y |2 } can be estimated by the empirical L2 risk (error on the sample) 1 n n |f (Xi ) − Yi |2 . , it chooses the smoothing parameter p that minimizes 1 n n |mn,p (Xi ) − Yi |2 . 14) i=1 Usually this leads to overly optimistic estimates of the L2 risk and is hence not useful. 14) favors estimates which are too well-adapted to the data and are not reasonable for new observations (X, Y ). This problem doesn’t occur if one uses a new sample ¯ 1 , Y¯1 ), .
