Arguments

x

Numeric vector containing data or a list containing several vectors.

prob

Probability coverage required for HDRs density.

h

Optional bandwidth for calculation of density.

lambda

Box-Cox transformation parameter where 0 <= lambda <= 1.

boxlabels

Label for each box plotted.

col

Colours for regions of each box.

main

Overall title for the plot.

xlab

Label for x-axis.

ylab

Label for y-axis.

pch

Plotting character.

border

Width of border of box.

outline

If not <code>TRUE</code>, the outliers are not drawn.

space

The space between each box, between 0 and 0.5.

...

Other arguments passed to plot.

Details

The density is estimated using kernel density estimation. A Box-Cox transformation is used if lambda!=1, as described in Wand, Marron and Ruppert (1991). This allows the density estimate to be non-zero only on the positive real line. The default kernel bandwidth h is selected using the algorithm of Samworth and Wand (2010).

Hyndman's (1996) density quantile algorithm is used for calculation.

Value

nothing.
