Description

Tuning of the bandwidth h of the kernel using the maximum likelihood cross validation.

Usage

1
mkde.tune( x, low = 0.1, up = 3, s = cov(x) )

Arguments

x

A matrix with Euclidean (continuous) data.

low

The minimum value to search for the optimal bandwidth value.

up

The maximum value to search for the optimal bandwidth value.

s

A covariance matrix. By default it is equal to the covariance matrix of the data, but can change to a robust covariance matrix, MCD for example.

Details

Maximum likelihood cross validation is applied in order to choose the optimal value of the bandwidth parameter. No plot is produced.

Value

A list including:

hopt

The optimal bandwidth value.

maximum

The value of the pseudo-log-likelihood at that given bandwidth value.
