Moment of Smoothing Kernel

Computes the complete or incomplete \(m\)th moment of a smoothing kernel.

Keywords
methods, smooth, nonparametric
Usage
kernel.moment(m, r, kernel = "gaussian")
Arguments
m

Exponent (order of moment). An integer.

r

Upper limit of integration for the incomplete moment. A numeric value or numeric vector. Set r=Inf to obtain the complete moment.

kernel

String name of the kernel. Options are "gaussian", "rectangular", "triangular", "epanechnikov", "biweight", "cosine" and "optcosine". (Partial matching is used).

Details

Kernel estimation of a probability density in one dimension is performed by density.default using a kernel function selected from the list above. For more information about these kernels, see density.default.

The function kernel.moment computes the partial integral $$ \int_{-\infty}^r t^m k(t) dt $$ where \(k(t)\) is the selected kernel, \(r\) is the upper limit of integration, and \(m\) is the exponent or order.

Value

A single number, or a numeric vector of the same length as r.
