Hns: Normal scale bandwidth

Description

Normal scale bandwidth.

Usage

4
Hns(x, deriv.order=0)
hns(x, deriv.order=0)
Hns.kcde(x)
hns.kcde(x)

Arguments

x

vector/matrix of data values

deriv.order

derivative order

Details

Hns is equal to (4/(n*(d+2*r+2)))^(2/(d+2*r+4))*var(x), n = sample size, d = dimension of data, r = derivative order. hns is the analogue of Hns for 1-d data. These can be used for density (derivative) estimators kde, kdde. The equivalents for distribution estimators kcde are Hns.kcde and hns.cde.

Value

Full normal scale bandwidth matrix.
