Methods for density estimation in thick-slice versions of Wicksells problem

Feuerverger, Andrey; Hall, Peter

Description

A new, implicit method is suggested for density estimation in inverse problems, where data are drawn not from the target distribution, hut rather from its image under a transformation. The approach that we propose produces density estimators that are themselves densities, without the negativity problems known to plague more explicit inversion techniques. We also suggest a general empirical approach to selecting the smoothing parameter so as to optimize performance in the context of the target...[Show more]
