abstract = {
The paper is concerned with the asymptotic distributions of estimators for
the length and the centre of the so-called η-shorth interval in a
nonparametric regression framework. It is shown that the estimator of the
length converges at the n1/2-rate to a Gaussian law and that the
estimator of the centre converges at the n1/3-rate to the location
of the maximum of a Brownian motion with parabolic drift.
Bootstrap procedures are proposed and shown to be consistent.
They are compared with the plug-in method through simulations.
