This function implements the selector proposed by Taylor (2008) for density estimation, based on an estimation of the concentration parameter of a von Mises distribution. The concentration parameter can be estimated by maximum likelihood or by a robustified procedure as described in Oliveira et al. (2013).
Data from which the smoothing parameter is to be computed. The object is coerced to class
Arc probability when
robust=TRUE, the parameter κ is estimated as follows:
1. Select α \in (0, 1) and find the shortest arc containing α \cdot 100\% of the sample data.
2. Obtain the estimated \hatκ in such way that the probability of a von Mises centered in the midpoint of the arc is
The NAs will be automatically removed.
