Abstract

We are introducing a new class of regressions called Taylor Regression and we are using it to create a unified method that can estimate a root, an extreme and an inflection point when we have discrete functional data. The method works with good accuracy for both simple and noisy data, while it is not necessary to use equidistant abscissae.

Keywords: Taylor series, Taylor regression, polynomial regression, root, extreme, inflection, OLS

JEL Classification: C65, C87
