  • In several applied fields, multimodality assessment is a crucial task as a previous exploratory tool or for determining the suitability of certain distributions. The goal of this paper is to present the utilities of the R package multimode, which collects different exploratory and testing nonparametric approaches for determining the number of modes and their estimated location. Specifically, some graphical tools, allowing for the identification of mode patterns, based on the kernel density… CONTINUE READING
