simukde

The R package for Simulation with Kernel Density Estimation

Features

1. Generates random values from a univariate and multivariate continuous distribution by using kernel density estimation based on a sample.
2. Finds the best fitting distribution from supported univariate continuous distributions for given data.

Example

## 1-dimensional data
data(faithful)
hist(faithful\$eruptions)
res <- simukde::simulate_kde(x = faithful\$eruptions, n = 1000)
hist(res\$random.values)

## Simulation with the best fitting instrumental distribution
data(faithful)
par(mfrow = c(1, 3))
hist(faithful\$eruptions)
fit <- simukde::find_best_fit(x = faithful\$eruptions, positive = TRUE)
res <- simukde::simulate_kde(
x = faithful\$eruptions, n = 1000,
distr = fit\$distribution, parallel = FALSE
)
hist(res\$random.values)
par(mfrow = c(1, 1))

## 2-dimensional data
data(faithful)
res <- simukde::simulate_kde(x = faithful, n = 100)
plot(res\$kde, display = "filled.contour2")
points(x = res\$random.values, cex = 0.25, pch = 16, col = "green")
points(x = faithful, cex = 0.25, pch = 16, col = "black")
