Bump hunting with non-Gaussian kernels
It is well known that the number of modes of a kernel density estimator is monotone nonincreasing in the bandwidth if the kernel is a Gaussian density. There is numerical evidence of nonmonotonicity in the case of some non-Gaussian kernels, but little additional information is available. The present paper provides theoretical and numerical descriptions of the extent to which the number of modes is a nonmonotone function of bandwidth in the case of general compactly supported densities....[Show more]
