Summary:
The problem addressed concerns the estimation of a p-dimensional multivariate density, given only a set of n observation vectors, together with information that the density function is likely to be reasonably smooth. A solution is proposed which employs up to n + 1/2 p(p+1) smoothing parameters, all of which may be estimated by their posterior means.

Abstract:

The problem addressed concerns the estimation of a p-dimensional multivariate density, given only a set of n observation vectors, together with information that the density function is likely to be reasonably smooth. A solution is proposed which employs up to n + 1/2 p(p+1) smoothing parameters, all of which may be estimated by their posterior means. This avoids the well-known difficulties, associated with even one-dimensional kernel estimators, of estimating the bandwidth or smoothing parameter by a mathematical procedure. The posterior mean value function, unconditional upon the smoothing parameters, turns out to be a data-based mixture of multivariate t-distributions. The corresponding estimate of the sampling covariance matrix may be viewed as a shrinkage estimator of the Bayes-Stein type. The results involve some finite series which may be evaluated by straightforward simulation procedure. (Author).
