Nonparametric Kernel Density Estimation Near the Boundary

Peter Malec & Melanie Schienle
Standard fixed symmetric kernel type density estimators are known to encounter problems for positive random variables with a large probability mass close to zero. We show that in such settings, alternatives of asymmetric gamma kernel estimators are superior but also differ in asymptotic and finite sample performance conditional on the shape of the density near zero and the exact form of the chosen kernel. We therefore suggest a refined version of the gamma kernel with...
