The second-, third-, and higher-order principal components are defined in the same way, but with additional constraints. 3) and the additional constraint ξ2 (t)ξ1 (t)dt = 0. 4) In general, for the jth component we require the additional constraints ξj (t)ξ1 (t)dt = ξj (t)ξ2 (t)dt = . . 5) which will ensure that all the estimated principal components are mutually orthogonal. 5). 1. Regard each of the functional data as a vector in 25-dimensional space, by reading off the values at each year of the individual’s age.

By standard statistical least squares theory, setting ξ = (B B)−1 B x will then specify the coefficients completely. If m = n the resulting expansion x(t) = j ξj βj (t) will interpolate the values xi exactly, whereas if m < n the expansion will be a smoothed version of the original data. In the criminology data example, the matrix B is the identity matrix and so we simply set ξ = x. On the other hand, if there are more basis functions than evaluation points, there will be many choices of ξ that will interpolate the given values exactly, so that m xk = ξj βj (tk ) for each k = 1, 2, .

Cross-validation for estimating the mean 39 In an ideal world, we would measure the efficacy of prediction by comparing the estimated mean curve to new functional observations. However, it would take 25 years or more to collect new data! ) Therefore we have to manufacture the “new observation” situation from our existing data. The way we do this is to leave each function out in turn from the estimation of the mean. ” To be precise, let m−i λ (t) be the smoothed sample mean calculated with smoothing parameter λ from all the data except Yi (t).
