NAME

gbmodes - Analyze multimodality in univariate data

SYNOPSIS

gbmodes [options]

DESCRIPTION

Multimodality analysis via kernel density estimation. Compute the maximal kernel bandwidth h_c(M) for which #(modes in the estimated density)>M.The significance of h_c is computed via smoothed bootstrap. Read data from std. input. Print the couple h_c p(h_c) and the modal values (set with -O).

OPTIONS

-n
number of equispaced points where the density is computed (default 100)
-m
number of modes (default 1)
-r
search range for modes; comma separated couple 'data_min,data_max'
-s
scale the search range to [min*s+(1-s)*Max,Max*s+(1-s)*min] (default 1)
-e
relative tolerance on h_c value (default 1e-6)
-S
significance level (for Hall-York correction) (default .05)
-t
number of bootstrap trials used for significance computation (default 1000)
-R
RNG seed for bootstrap trials (default 0)
-K
choose the kernel to use: 0 Gaussian or 1 Laplacian (default 0)
-v
verbose mode (more verbose if provided 2 times)
-O
output type (default 0)
0
h_c p(h_c) [modes locations]
1
h_c [modes locations and heights]
-F
specify the input fields separators (default " \t")
-h
