This paper proposes a nonparametric FPE-like procedure based on the smooth backfitting estimator when the additive structure is a priori known. This procedure can be expected to perform well because of its well-known finite sample performance of the smooth backfitting estimator. Consistency of our procedure is established under very general conditions, including heteroskedasticity.
