bwchoice: Choice of bandwidth achieving a prescribed effective degree...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also

Description

Perform a search for the bandwidths in the given grid. For each explanatory variable, the bandwidth is chosen such that the trace of the smoothing matrix according to that variable (effective degree of freedom) is equal to a prescribed value. This function is not intended to be used directly.

Usage

1
bwchoice(X,objectif,kernelx="g",itermax=1000)

Arguments

X

A matrix with n rows (individuals) and p columns (numeric variables).

objectif

A numeric vector of either length 1 or length equal to the number of columns of X. It indicates the desired effective degree of freedom (trace) of the smoothing matrix for each variable. objectif is repeated when the length of vector objectif is 1.

kernelx

String which allows to choose between gaussian kernel ("g"), Epanechnikov ("e"), uniform ("u"), quartic ("q").

itermax

A scalar which controls the number of iterations for that search.

Value

Returns a vector of length d, the number of explanatory variable, where each coordinate is the value of the selected bandwidth for each explanatory variable
