# On Estimation of $L_{r}$-Norms in Gaussian White Noise Models

11 Oct 2017Yanjun HanJiantao JiaoRajarshi Mukherjee

We provide a complete picture of asymptotically minimax estimation of $L_r$-norms (for any $r\ge 1$) of the mean in Gaussian white noise model over Nikolskii-Besov spaces. In this regard, we complement the work of Lepski, Nemirovski and Spokoiny (1999), who considered the cases of $r=1$ (with poly-logarithmic gap between upper and lower bounds) and $r$ even (with asymptotically sharp upper and lower bounds) over H\"{o}lder spaces...
