The Gram-Charlier A Series based Extended Rule-of-Thumb for Bandwidth Selection in Univariate and Multivariate Kernel Density Estimations [article]

Dharmani Bhaveshkumar C
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The article derives a novel Gram-Charlier A (GCA) Series based Extended Rule-of-Thumb (ExROT) for bandwidth selection in Kernel Density Estimation (KDE).  ...  Intuitively, better estimation of R(f"(·)) and consequently better bandwidth selection rules can be derived, if the unknown PDF is approximated through an infinite series expansion based on a more generalized  ...  Then, the bandwidth selection rule in Equation (37) 4! Over all, the Gram-Charlier A Series based Extended Rule-of-Thumb for bandwidth parameter h GC selection in multivariate KDE is obtained.  ...

Gradient of Probability Density Functions based Contrasts for Blind Source Separation (BSS) [article]

Dharmani Bhaveshkumar C
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Instead of a conventional two stage indirect estimation method for joint PDF based BSS contrast estimation, a single stage direct estimation of the contrasts is desired.  ...  For the k^th order differentiable multivariate functions with equal hyper-volumes (region bounded by hyper-surfaces) and with a constraint of bounded support for k>1, it proves that equality of any k^th  ...  The suitable choice of a kernel bandwidth parameter using data dependent bandwidth selection Extended Rule-of-Thumb by (Dharmani Bhaveshkumar, 2015) achieves a parameter free contrast estimation.  ...

Semiparametric maximum likelihood probability density estimation

Frank Kwasniok, Bryan C Daniels
2021 PLoS ONE  
The new technique compares very favourably to kernel density estimation, the diffusion estimator, finite mixture models and local likelihood density estimation across a diverse range of simulation and  ...  The semiparametric estimator combines a very small mean integrated squared error with a high degree of smoothness which allows for a robust and reliable detection of the modality of the probability density  ...  Acronym Description KDE1 Gaussian kernel density estimator with rule-of-thumb bandwidth [1] ; reflection method applied at any boundary point KDE2 MATLAB in-built Gaussian kernel density estimator with  ...
