`x` |
vector or matrix of data values |

`pre` |
"scale" = |

`pilot` |
"amse" = AMSE pilot bandwidths |

`Hstart` |
initial bandwidth matrix, used in numerical optimisation |

`binned` |
flag for binned kernel estimation. Default is FALSE. |

`bgridsize` |
vector of binning grid sizes |

`amise` |
flag to return the minimal scaled SCV value. Default is FALSE. |

`deriv.order` |
derivative order |

`verbose` |
flag to print out progress information. Default is FALSE. |

`optim.fun` |
optimiser function: one of |

`nstage` |
number of stages in the SCV bandwidth selector (1 or 2) |

`plot` |
flag to display plot of SCV(h) vs h (1-d only). Default is FALSE. |

`hscv`

is the univariate SCV
selector of Jones, Marron & Park (1991). `Hscv`

is a
multivariate generalisation of this, see Duong & Hazelton (2005).
Use `Hscv`

for full bandwidth matrices and `Hscv.diag`

for diagonal bandwidth matrices.

The default pilot is `"samse"`

for d=2,r=0, and
`"dscalar"`

otherwise. For SAMSE pilot bandwidths, see Duong &
Hazelton (2005). Unconstrained and higher order derivative pilot
bandwidths are from Chacon & Duong (2011).

For d=1, the selector `hscv`

is not always stable for large
sample sizes with binning.
Examine the plot from `hscv(, plot=TRUE)`

to
determine the appropriate smoothness of the SCV function. Any
non-smoothness is due to the discretised nature of binned estimation.

For details about the advanced options for `binned, Hstart`

,
see `Hpi`

SCV bandwidth. If `amise=TRUE`

then the minimal scaled SCV value is returned too.
