Abstract:

Any kind of smoother is not easy to grapple with, either to understand or to choose, but non-linear smoothers--often the smoothers to be preferred--are harder to grasp than the simpler, linear ones. The purpose of this account is to give its readers some background with which to think about non-linear smoothers, particularly resistant ones. It does not attempt the task--probably today quite unfeasible--of providing a comprehensive guide to which smoother to use where and when.
