NAME¶gbker - Produce kernel density estimation
DESCRIPTION¶Compute the kernel density estimation on an equispaced grid. Data are read from standard input. The kernel bandwidth, if not provided with the option -H, is set automatically using simple heuristics. Normally the whole support is displayed. The option -w can be used to restrict the computation to specific range of values. The method used to compute the density is set by the option -M. The boundaries of the grid are slightly different in the different cases.
- number of equispaced points/bins where the density is computed (default 64)
- set the grid boundaries with min,max (default whole support)
- set the kernel bandwidth
- scale the automatic kernel bandwidth
- choose the kernel to use (default 0)
- choose the method for density computation (default 0)
- use FFT (# grid points rounded to nearest power of 2)
- use discrete convolution (compact kernels only; bins>2)
- explicit summation (boundaries excluded)
- specify the input fields separators (default " \t")
- gbker -n 128 -K 2 < file
- use a Gaussian kernel to compute the density on 128 equispaced points with the FFT approach. All the data in 'file' are used, multiple columns are pooled.
- gbker -K 3 -M 2 < file
- use a Laplacian kernel to compute the density on 64 points. The method used is the explicit summation.
