Density estimation using bootstrap bandwidth selector
Smoothing methods for density estimators struggle when the shape of the reference density differs markedly from the actual density. We propose a bootstrap bandwidth selector where no reference distribution is used. It performs reliably in difficult cases and asymptotically outperforms well known automatic bandwidths.
