High angular resonance diffusion imaging (HARDI) is a popular in vivo neuroimaging technique. A high order tensor model was developed by Özarslan and Mareci (2003) to model HARDI data. Sakhanenko (2012) established the minimax lower bounds for the asymptotic risk of the estimators of the integral curves under a simpler model with imaging signal modeled with vector fi eld perturbed by an additive noise. Carmichael and Sakhanenko (2015) (C-S) investigated estimators of the integral curves and their asymptotic distributions with a proper rate of convergence in high order tensor models for HARDI. The present work seeks to establish the rate of convergence in the C-S paper is optimal in the minimax sense for the fi ber estimators under a tensor model for the imaging signals. It also establishes the minimax lower bound for the asymptotic risk of the integral curve estimators under the tensor model, thereby extending the work of Sakhanenko (2012).
