The varying coefficient (VC) model is a generalization of ordinary linear model, which can not only retain strong interpretability but also has the flexibility of the nonparametric model. In this paper, we investigate a VC model with hierarchical structure. A unified variable selection method for VC model is proposed, which can simultaneously select the nonzero effects and estimate the unknown coefficient functions. Meanwhile, the selected model enforces the hierarchical structure, that is,doi:10.3390/math9020132 fatcat:m2bjinu4qzdntppunmvaw7alee
