hermiter-package: Efficient Sequential and Batch Estimation of Univariate and...

Description Package Content Maintainer Author(s)


Facilitates estimation of full univariate and bivariate probability density functions and cumulative distribution functions along with full quantile functions (univariate) and nonparametric correlation (bivariate) using Hermite series based estimators. These estimators are particularly useful in the sequential setting (both stationary and non-stationary) and one-pass batch estimation setting for large data sets. Based on: Stephanou, Michael, Varughese, Melvin and Macdonald, Iain. "Sequential quantiles via Hermite series density estimation."
