Bandwidth choice for density derivatives. (English) Zbl 0699.62036
Summary: An adaptation of least squares cross-validation is proposed for bandwidth-choice in the kernel estimation of the derivatives of a probability density. The practicality of the method is demonstrated by an example and a simulation study. Theoretical justification is provided by an asymptotic optimality result.
