A Simple Deconvolving Kernel Density Estimator when Noise is Gaussian
Deconvolving kernel estimators when noise is Gaussian entail heavy calculations. In order to obtain the density estimates numerical evaluation of a specific integral is needed. This work proposes an approximation to the deconvolving kernel which simplifies considerably calculations by avoiding the typical numerical integration. Simulations included indicate that the lost in performance relatively to the true deconvolving kernel, is almost negligible in finite samples.
