Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/kde2d.R

Description

Two-dimensional kernel density estimation with an axis-aligned bivariate normal kernel, evaluated on a square grid.

Usage

1
kde2d(x, y, h, n = 25, lims = c(range(x), range(y)))

Arguments

x

x coordinate of data

y

y coordinate of data

h

vector of bandwidths for x and y directions. Defaults to normal reference bandwidth (see bandwidth.nrd). A scalar value will be taken to apply to both directions.

n

Number of grid points in each direction. Can be scalar or a length-2 integer vector.

lims

The limits of the rectangle covered by the grid as c(xl, xu, yl, yu).

Value

A list of three components.

x, y

The x and y coordinates of the grid points, vectors of length n.

z

An n[1] by n[2] matrix of the estimated density: rows correspond to the value of x, columns to the value of y.
