getBandWidth | R Documentation |

Calculates the optimal bandwidth for von Mises kernel density estimation for a given sample. Used internally by other functions in the package.

```
getBandWidth(A, kmax = 3)
```

`A` |
a vector of times of observations in |

`kmax` |
maximum moment to use for estimation; see Ridout & Linkie 2009. |

Optimal bandwidth for the sample data, or NA if estimation fails.
