Sheather-Jones choice of smoothing parameter for density estimation

Description

This function uses the Sheather-Jones plug-in method of selecting a smoothing parameter which is suitable for constructing a density estimate in the one-dimensional case.

Usage

1
hsj(x)

Arguments

x

a vector of data.

Details

See Section 2.4.4 of the reference below.

Value

the value of the smoothing parameter located by the Sheather-Jones method.

Note

As from version 2.1 of the package, a similar effect can be obtained with the new function h.select, via h.select(x, method="sj"). Users are encouraged to adopt this route, since hsj might be not accessible directly in future releases of the package.
