Bandwidth conversion from Gaussian

A naive and simple, but useful way of transforming a bandwidth for use with the Gaussian kernel to an appropriate value to be used with a kernel implemented in the FKSUM package. The transformation if based on the relative values for the kernels for the AMISE minimal bandwidth for the purpose of density estimation. The transformation has been useful for other problems as well.

# NOT RUN {
### Use existing bandwidth selection with the package

### generate sample from bimodal Gaussian mixture with varying scale

x <- c(rnorm(100000), rnorm(100000)/4 + 2)

### estimate bandwidth using bw.SJ

bwsj <- h_Gauss_to_K(bw.SJ(x), c(.25,.25))

xs <- seq(-3, 4, length = 1000)
plot(xs, dnorm(xs)/2+dnorm(xs,2,1/4)/2, type = 'l',
    col = rgb(.7, .7, .7), lwd = 4)

lines(fk_density(x, h = bwsj), lty = 2, lwd = 2)
