Modern apparatuses allow us to collect samples of functional data, mainly curves but also images. On the other hand, nonparametric statistics produces useful tools for standard data exploration. This book links these two fields of modern statistics by explaining how functional data can be studied through parameter-free statistical ideas. At the same time it shows how functional data can be studied through parameter-free statistical ideas, and offers an original presentation of new nonparametric statistical methods for functional data analysis.The functional aspect of the problem is very important too, and we have to attack it in such a way as to use the whole ... works by [W64] and [N64], at the intermediary survey by [C85] and at [S00] or [AP03] for a description of the state of the art.
