We consider the problem of constructing a functional regression modeling with functional predictors and a functional response. Discretely observed data for each individual are expressed as a smooth function, using Gaussian basis functions. The functional regression model is estimated by the maximum penalized likelihood method, assuming that the coefficient parameters are transformed into a functional form. A crucial issue in constructing functional regression models is the selection of regularization parameters involved in the regularization method. We derive information-theoretic and Bayesian model selection criteria for evaluating the estimated model. Monte Carlo simulations and real data analysis are conducted to examine the performance of our functional regression modeling strategy.
