# GWR Gaussian weights function

### Description

The gwr.gauss function returns a vector of weights using the Gaussian scheme:

*w(g) = e^{{-(d/h)}^2}*

where *d* are the distances between the observations
and *h* is the bandwidth.

The default (from release 0.5) gwr.Gauss function returns a vector of weights using the Gaussian scheme:

*w(g) = e^{-(1/2) {{(d/h)}^2}}*
