Shape constraints play an increasingly prominent role in nonparametric function estimation. While considerable recent attention has been focused on log concavity as a regularizing device in nonparametric density estimation, weaker forms of concavity constraints encompassing larger classes of densities have received less attention but offer some additional flexibility. Heavier tail behavior and sharper modal peaks are better adapted to such weaker concavity constraints. When paired withdoi:10.1214/18-sts658 fatcat:owrpcfokind7xonrpwe576yruu
