Abstract: We construct the projection estimators of the shape of the concentration function and obtain their expansions in the basis of indicator functions (the histogram basis) in the case where the data is a sample from a mixture of two components with unknown distributions whose concentrations are varying with observations. We prove that the estimators are consistent and find the rate of the almost sure convergence.
