Is not too large in a suitable sense to be explained below. We do not know of any other estimation method allowing to deal with model selection in such a generality and with as few assumptions. The main drawback of the method is its theoretical nature, eﬀective computation of the estimators being typically computationally too costly for permitting a practical implementation. In order to give a more precise idea of what this paper is about, we need to start by recalling a few well-known facts about Poisson processes that can, for instance, be found in Reiss [29].

This implies that S is a D-model with parameters η, (log K)/4 and 1. 2 √log K. 2k log(c( N/k + 1)), this inequality holds since η ≥ 2 k, hence K ≤ [c( N/k + 1)]k . The number of tests required for building the T-estimator is |S|(|S| − 1) < K 2 . For N of the order of 100 and k as small as 5, K 2 is of the order of 1010 . This toy example illustrates the diﬃculty of implementing the algorithm. More realistic ones would be much worse. 4. Applications with linear models We now assume that µ = µs = s · λ and focus on the estimation of the intensity s by model selection, starting with linear models in L2 (λ) that possess good √ approximating properties with respect to s.
