So how do we choose an optimal value for the bandwidth? ” This is a problem that arises in every approximation problem: balancing the faithfulness of representation against the simplicity of behavior. ” To make matters concrete, we have to define a specific expression for the error of our approximation, one that takes into account both bias and variance. We can then choose a value for the bandwidth that minimizes this error. For KDEs, the generally accepted measure is the “expected mean-square error” between the approximation and the true density.
It’s certainly the majority of events, but if we want to know exactly how many, then we need to sum up the contributions from all bins in that region. The cumulative distribution function (CDF) does just that. The CDF at point x tells us what fraction of events has occurred “to the left” of x. In other words, the CDF is the fraction of all points xi with xi ≤ x. Figure 2-7 shows the same data set that we have already encountered in Figure 2-2, but here the data is represented by a KDE (with bandwidth h = 30) instead of a histogram.
Comparing data sets using KDEs: refractive index of different types of glass. ) Workshop: NumPy The NumPy module provides efficient and convenient handling of large numerical arrays in Python. It is the successor to both the earlier Numeric and the alternative numarray modules. ) The NumPy module is used by many other libraries and projects and in this sense is a “base” technology. Let’s look at some quick examples before delving a bit deeper into technical details. NumPy in Action NumPy objects are of type ndarray.
