Adaptive kernel density estimation

  • Philippe Van Kerm

    (CEPS/INSTEAD, Luxembourg)

This insert describes the module akdensity. akdensity extends the official kdensity that estimates density functions by the kernel method. The extensions are of two types: akdensity allows the use of an "adaptive kernel" approach with varying, rather than fixed, bandwidths; and akdensity estimates pointwise variability bands around the estimated density functions.
