Some Developments in Semiparametric Statistics

  • Anton Schick
  • Wolfgang Wefelmeyer


In this paper we describe the historical development of some parts of semiparametric statistics. The emphasis is on efficient estimation. We understand semiparametric model in the general sense of a model that is neither parametric nor nonparametric. We restrict attention to models with independent and identically distributed observations and to time series.
