Description

Computing the OSCV smooth rescaling constant that corresponds to using the two-sided kernel H_I for the cross-validation purposes and the Gaussian kernel in the estimation stage. The constant is applicable for the OSCV versions in the regression and kernel density estimation contexts.

Usage

1
C_smooth(alpha, sigma)

Arguments

alpha

first parameter of the two-sided cross-validation kernel H_I,

sigma

second parameter of the two-sided cross-validation kernel H_I.

Details

Computation of the OSCV rescaling constant C (see (10) in Savchuk and Hart (2017) or (3) in Savchuk (2017)). The constant is a function of the parameters (α,σ) of the two-sided cross-validation kernel H_I defined by expression (15) in Savchuk and Hart (2017). The Gaussian kernel is used for computing the ultimate (regression or density) estimate. The constant is used in the OSCV versions for kernel regression and density estimation. Notice that in the cases α=0, σ>0 and σ=1, -∞<α<∞ the kernel H_I reduces to the Gaussian kernel.

Value

The OSCV smooth rescaling constant C for the given values of the parameters α and σ.
