merge_hermite: Merges a list of Hermite estimators

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/hermite_estimator.R

Description

Note that the estimators must be of the same type to be merged i.e. all estimators must have a consistent est_type, either "univariate" or "bivariate". In addition, the N and standardize arguments must be the same for all estimators in order to merge them. Finally, note that exponentially weighted estimators cannot be merged. If the Hermite estimators are not standardized, the merged estimator will be exactly equivalent to constructing a single estimator on the data set formed by combining the data sets used to update the respective hermite_estimator inputs. If the input Hermite estimators are standardized however, then the equivalence will be approximate but still accurate in most cases.

Usage
