density estimate 
This function calculates quantiles of the probability distribution
whose probability density has been estimated and stored in the object
x
. The object x
must belong to the class "density"
,
and would typically have been obtained from a call to the function
density
.
The probability density is first normalised so that the total
probability is equal to 1. A warning is issued if the density
estimate was restricted to an interval (i.e. if x
was created by a call to density
which
included either of the arguments from
and to
).
Next, the density estimate is numerically integrated to obtain an estimate of the cumulative distribution function F(x). Then for each desired probability p, the algorithm finds the corresponding quantile q.
The quantile q corresponding to probability p
satisfies F(q) = p up to
the resolution of the grid of values contained in x
.
The quantile is computed from the right, that is,
q is the smallest available value of x such that
F(x) >= p.
A numeric vector containing the quantiles.
