Dear Aurélie,
I think that for *fixed* (i.e. assumed known) amount of smoothing, you can
use a simple LRT by comparing the two candidate models.

BTW, have a look to the mgcv or gam packages for a general model-based

Dear list,

I would like to know it is possible to test the significance of a loess ; in
other words, I would like to know if the loess I got is significantly
different from a linear model.
