Description

Fit wave function coefficients from a sample

Usage

1
wavefunction_fit(x, degree)

Arguments

x

a sample from a distribution on the reals

degree

the Hermite polynomial degree to fit

Details

Fits a Hermite wave function density of degree degree. The values will maximize the likelihood under the density specified under dwavefunction. A more accurate representation is obtained for a low degree if the sample is standardized to have mean zero and variance one-half. There are diminishing returns to degree greater than 20 or so due to floating point limitations.

Value

a numeric vector of coefficients of length degree+1
