Derv2: Calculating the second order derivative with and without... In pendensity: Density Estimation with a Penalized Mixture Approach

Description

Calculating the second order derivative of the likelihood function of the pendensity approach w.r.t. the parameter beta. Thereby, for later use, the program returns the second order derivative with and without the penalty.

Usage

 `1` ```Derv2(penden.env, lambda0) ```

Arguments

 `penden.env` Containing all information, environment of pendensity() `lambda0` smoothing parameter lambda

Details

We approximate the second order derivative in this approach with the negative fisher information.

\eqn{J(beta)= partial^2 l(beta) / (partial(beta) partial(beta)) = sum(s[i](beta) s[i]^T(beta))}

Therefore we construct the second order derivative of the i-th observation w.r.t. beta with the outer product of the matrix Derv1.cal and the i-th row of the matrix Derv1.cal.
The penalty is computed as

\eqn{ lambda Dm}

.

Value

 `Derv2.pen` second order derivative w.r.t. beta with penalty `Derv2.cal` second order derivative w.r.t. beta without penalty. Needed for calculating of e.g. AIC.
