MARTINEZ-CAMBLOR, PABLO. Studying the Bandwidth Effects in Non Parametric k--Sample Tests. Rev.Colomb.Estad. [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.2, pp. 157-168. ISSN 0120-1751.
The election of the smoothing parameter or bandwidth is, probably, the most important concern in the statistical smoothed techniques. The relevance of this parameter, on the obtained results difficult, the use of these methods in statistical inference, because the final decision could be determined for the used bandwidth. The main goal of this paper is discussing and studying some algorithms for the automatic computation of the bandwidth in k--sample problems.
