#' Estimation of Nonparametric Trend Functions via Kernel Regression
#'
#' This function estimates the nonparametric trend function in an equidistant
#' time series with Nadaraya-Watson kernel regression.
#'
#' @param y a numeric vector that contains the time series data ordered from
#' past to present.
#' @param mu an integer \code{0}, \code{1}, \code{2}, ... that represents the
#' smoothness parameter of the second order kernel function that will be used;
#' is set to \code{1} by default.

#' @param b a real number \eqn{0 <} \code{b} \eqn{< 0.5}; represents the
#' relative bandwidth that will be used for the smoothing process; is set to

#' @param bb can be set to \code{0} or \code{1}; the parameter controlling the
#' bandwidth used at the boundary; is set to \code{0} by default.

#'
#'The trend is estimated based on the additive
#'nonparametric regression model for an equidistant time series
#'\deqn{y_t = m(x_t) + \epsilon_t,}
#'where \eqn{y_t} is the observed time series, \eqn{x_t} is the rescaled time
#'on the interval \eqn{[0, 1]}, \eqn{m(x_t)} is a smooth and deterministic
#'trend function and \eqn{\epsilon_t} are stationary errors with
#'\eqn{E(\epsilon_t) = 0}.
#'
#'This function is part of the package \code{smoots} and is used for
#'the estimation of trends in equidistant time series. The applied method
#'is a kernel regression with arbitrarily selectable second order
#'kernel, relative bandwidth and boundary method. Especially the chosen
#'bandwidth has a strong impact on the final result and has thus to be
#'selected carefully. This approach is not recommended by the authors of this
#'package.

#'@return The output object is a list with different components:

#'\describe{
#'\item{b}{the chosen (relative) bandwidth; input argument.}
#'\item{bb}{the chosen bandwidth option at the boundaries; input argument.}
#'\item{mu}{the chosen smoothness parameter for the second order kernel; input
#'argument.}
#'\item{n}{the number of observations.}
#'\item{orig}{the original input series; input argument.}
#'\item{res}{a vector with the estimated residual series.}
#'\item{ye}{a vector with the estimates of the nonparametric trend.}
