This class of objects is returned by `muhaz`

, which estimates the
hazard function from censored data.

`pin.common` |
list containing the input parameters. Its components are: * times - the survival times vector * delta - the censoring vector * nobs - the number of observations * min.time - the minimum time used in analysis * max.time - the maximum time used in analysis * n.min.grid - number of points in the minimization grid * min.grid - the minimization grid * n.est.grid - number of points in the estimation grid * bw.pilot - the pilot bandwidth * bw.smooth - the smoothing bandwidth for the local optimal bandwidths * bw.method - the method used to estimate the hazard rates * b.cor - boundary correction used * kernel.type - kernel function used in the smoothing |

`est.grid` |
the estimation grid where the hazard rates are computed. |

`haz.est` |
the hazard estimates calculated at the estimation grid points. |

`imse.opt` |
IMSE for the optimal bandwidth. |

`bw.glob` |
optimal global bandwidth. For bw.method="global" only. |

`glob.imse` |
vector of IMSE, computed at each point in bw.grid. For bw.method="global" only. |

`bw.grid` |
Grid of bandwidth values used in the minimization. For bw.method="global" or "local". |

`bw.loc` |
vector of optimal local bandwidths computed by minimizing the MSE at each point in the minimization grid. Not used for bw.method="local". |

`bw.loc.sm` |
vector of smoothed local bandwidths, computed at each point in the estimation
grid by smoothing |

`bias.min` |
vector of minimized bias, computed at each point in the minimization grid for the optimal local bandwidth. For bw.method="local" only. |

`var.min` |
vector of minimized variance, computed at each point in the minimization grid for the optimal local bandwidth. For bw.method="local" only. |

`k.grid` |
grid of nearest neighbor numbers used in the minimization. For bw.method="knn" only. |

`k.imse` |
vector of IMSE, computed at each of the points of |

`k.opt` |
optimum number of nearest neighbors. For bw.method="knn" only. |
