Abstract
Functional data analysis (FDA) is a fast-growing area in statistics with the aim of estimating a set of related functions or curves rather than focusing on a single entity, like estimating a point, as in classical statistics. FDA has a wide range of applications in different fields such as biological sciences, geology, psychology, economics, image data, etc. In fact, discrete data points collected over a continuum can be thought of as a function that is assumed to be a reasonably smooth mechanism giving rise to those discrete observed points. This continuum is not necessarily a physical time point, but rather attributes such as age, spatial location, seasons, or temperature.
