Equivalence of smoothing parameter selectors in density and intensity estimation. (English) Zbl 0662.62036
Kernel smoothing is an attractive method for the nonparametric estimation of either a probability density function or the intensity function of a nonstationary Poisson process. In each case the amount of smoothing, controlled by the bandwidth, that is, smoothing parameter, is crucial to the performance of the estimator. Bandwidth selection by cross-validation has been widely studied in the context of density estimation. A bandwidth selector in the intensity estimation case has been proposed that minimizes an estimate of the mean squared error under the assumption that the data are generated by a stationary Cox process. This article shows that these two methods each select the same bandwidth, even though they are motivated in much different ways. In addition, to providing further justification of each method, this equivalence of smoothing parameter selectors yields new insights for both density and intensity estimation.
