Proposed Analysis: My team plans to adopt functional data analysis to solve the problem of numerical interpolation of block missing data, and to interpolate the missing features based on KL by using functional principal component analysis. It is expected that this new method for block-wise missing data can be developed, which does not rely on the missing mechanism and the probability of missing, and therefore is robust against misspecifical probability of missing . This method is more robust because it utilizes not only a fully observed data set, but also many more data sets.
