Abstract: An important problem in time series is the estimation of the spectral density or spectrum of a stationary process. In this paper we propose to use an M-type smoothing spline to estimate the spectrum. We derive some general results for these type of estimators which allow us to choose the optimal M-type spline in some asymptotical sense. Applying the theoretical results to our objective, the estimation of the spectrum, the selected estimator improves the classical estimation with least-squares splines.
