Talk:Variable kernel density estimation

There seems to be a factor 1/h missing in the first section called Rationale. Compare here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_density_estimation#Definition

Good call. In my own paper, the h is a sigma and it is absorbed into K while the K is not normalized and there is a separate normalization coefficient. However, I decided in this article to pull out the bandwidth, change the symbol and normalize K to bring my notation more in line with others, not realizing that you also have to pull h out of the normalization coefficient.
