Hi,
I have been looking for a method of estimating a parametric model from
the output (x, y) from the R function "density". Below is my thought and
wonder if it looks OK. Suppose that we build a single gaussian model for
each input data point x (x is the mean), the overal model may be a sum
of these gaussian models built on each x, i.e. P(y) = \sum_x P(y|x,
\sigma), where y is any new data point. Is this right? Any normalization
is applied?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion that you may offer me!
Best regards,
Hui
