Multivariate kernel density estimation for compositional data

Description

Multivariate kernel density estimation for compositional data.

Usage

comp.kern(x, type= "alr", h = NULL, thumb = "silverman")

Arguments

x

A matrix with Euclidean (continuous) data.

type

The type of trasformation used, either the additive log-ratio ("alr"), the isometric log-ratio ("ilr") or the pivot coordinate ("pivot") transformation.

h

The bandwidh value. It can be a single value, which is turned into a vector and then into a diagonal matrix, or a vector which is turned into a diagonal matrix. If it is NULL, then you need to specify the "thumb" argument below.

thumb

Do you want to use a rule of thumb for the bandwidth parameter? If no, leave the "h" NULL and put "estim" for maximum likelihood cross-validation, "scott" or "silverman" for Scott's and Silverman's rules of thumb respectively.

Details

The multivariate kernel density estimate is calculated with a (not necssarily given) bandwidth value.

Value

A vector with the density estimates calculated for every vector.
