`FMA.concurrent.Rd`

This function performs functional mediation regression under the concurrent model with given tuning parameter.

```
FMA.concurrent(Z, M, Y, intercept = TRUE, basis = NULL, Ld2.basis = NULL,
basis.type = c("fourier"), nbasis = 3, timeinv = c(0, 1), timegrids = NULL,
lambda.m = 0.01, lambda.y = 0.01)

The concurrent mediation model is $$M(t)=Z(t)\alpha(t)+\epsilon_{1}(t),$$ $$Y(t)=Z(t)\gamma(t)+M(t)\beta(t)+\epsilon_{2}(t),$$ where \(\alpha(t)\), \(\beta(t)\), \(\gamma(t)\) are coefficient curves. The model coefficient curves are estimated by minimizing the penalized \(L_{2}\)-loss.
