Adaptive non-asymptotic confidence balls in density estimation
ESAIM: Probability and Statistics, Tome 16 (2012), pp. 61-85.

We build confidence balls for the common density s of a real valued sample X1,...,Xn. We use resampling methods to estimate the projection of s onto finite dimensional linear spaces and a model selection procedure to choose an optimal approximation space. The covering property is ensured for all n ≥ 2 and the balls are adaptive over a collection of linear spaces.
