Description

This function computes the matrix \hat{A} of the smoothed log-concave maximum likelihood estimator

Usage

1
hatA(lcd)

Arguments

lcd

Object of class "LogConcDEAD" (typically output from mlelcd)

Details

This function evaluates the the matrix \hat{A} of the smoothed log-concave maximum likelihood estimator, which is positive definite, and equals the difference between the sample covariance matrix and the covariance matrix of the fitted log-concave maximum likelihood density estimator.

For examples, see mlelcd

Value

A matrix equals \hat{A} of the smoothed log-concave maximum likelihood estimator

Note

Details of the computational aspects can be found in Chen and Samworth (2011).
