  • Recognition and extraction of features in a nonparametric density estimate is highly dependent on correct calibration. The data-driven choice of bandwidth h in kernel density estimation is a di cult one, compounded by the fact that the globally optimal h is not generally optimal for all values of x. In recognition of this fact, a new type of graphical tool, the mode tree, is proposed. The basic mode tree plot relates the locations of modes in density estimates with the bandwidths of those… CONTINUE READING
