We discuss the difficulties of estimating quadratic functionals based on observations Y (t) from the white noise model Y (t) where Y (t) is a standard Wiener process on Y (t) . The optimal rates of convergence (as Y (t) ) for estimating quadratic functionals under certain geometric constraints are found. Specifically, the optimal rates of estimating Y (t) under hyperrectangular constraints Y (t) and weighted Y (t) -body constraints Y (t) are computed explicitly, where Y (t) is the Y (t) th Fourier-Bessel coefficient of the unknown function Y (t) . We develop lower bounds based on testing two highly composite hypercubes and address their advantages. The attainable lower bounds are found by applying the hardest one-dimensional approach as well as the hypercube method. We demonstrate that for estimating regular quadratic functionals [ie, the functionals which can be estimated
