Mobius-like mappings and their use in kernel density estimation
It is well known that the manipulation of sample data by means of a parametric function can improve the performance of kernel density estimation. This article proposes a two-parameter Mobius-like function to map sample data drawn from a semi-infinite space into (-1,1). A standard kernel method is then used to estimate the density. The proposed method is shown to yield effective estimates of density and is computationally more efficient than other well-known transformation methods. The efficacy of the technique is demonstrated in a practical setting by application to two datasets.
