Iterative Algorithm for Non Parametric Estimation in Instrumental Variables Quantiles

Frédérique Fève, and Jean-Pierre Florens


This paper proposes a simple algorithm for the numerical computation of the non parametric IV quantile estimation. This algorithm is based on the Landweber iterations for solving a nonlinear integral equation. The paper is illustrated by numerical simulations.
