Abstract

Many asymptotic results for kernel-based estimators were established under some smoothness assumption on density. For cases where smoothness assumptions that are used to derive unbiasedness or asymptotic rate may not hold we propose a combined estimator that could lead to the best available rate without knowledge of density smoothness. A Monte Carlo example confirms good performance of the combined estimator.
