ADAPTATION IN LOG-CONCAVE DENSITY ESTIMATION

Arlene KH Kim, Adityanand Guntuboyina & Richard Samworth
The log-concave maximum likelihood estimator of a density on the real line based on a sample of size n is known to attain the minimax optimal rate of convergence of O(n −4/5 ) with respect to, e.g., squared Hellinger distance. In this paper, we show that it also enjoys attractive adaptation properties, in the sense that it achieves a faster rate of convergence when the logarithm of the true density is k-affine (i.e. made up...
