Performs functional principal component analysis of probability densities in order to describe a data folder, consisting of *T* groups of individuals on which are observed *p* variables. It returns an object of class `fpcad`

.

The *T* probability densities *f_t* corresponding to the *T* groups of individuals are either parametrically estimated (`gaussiand = TRUE`

) or estimated using the Gaussian kernel method (`gaussiand = FALSE`

). In the latter case, the `windowh`

argument provides the list of the bandwidths to use. Notice that in the multivariate case (*p*>1) the bandwidths are positive-definite matrices.

If `windowh`

is a numerical value, the matrix bandwidth is of the form *h S*, where *S* is either the square root of the covariance matrix (*p*>1) or the standard deviation of the estimated density.

If `windowh = NULL`

(default), *h* in the above formula is computed using the `bandwidth.parameter`

function.

Returns an object of class `fpcad`

, that is a list including:

`inertia ` |
data frame of the eigenvalues and percentages of inertia. |

`contributions ` |
data frame of the contributions to the first |

`qualities ` |
data frame of the qualities on the first |

`scores ` |
data frame of the first |

`norm ` |
vector of the |

`means ` |
list of the means. |

`variances ` |
list of the covariance matrices. |

`correlations ` |
list of the correlation matrices. |

`skewness ` |
list of the skewness coefficients. |

`kurtosis ` |
list of the kurtosis coefficients. |
