Abstract

In this paper we introduce a general interpolation scheme to be applied in the kernel density estimation. Our scheme is based on a piecewise higher-degree polynomial interpolation with a strategically chosen set of interpolation points. It is found that our interpolation scheme improves on the kernel density estimation in terms of the integrated mean squared error. A multivariate extension of our findings shows that the improvement increases substantially with the data dimension. In addition to the theoretical improvement, it is demonstrated that our interpolation scheme brings about a considerable computational saving over the original kernel density estimator, making itself comparable to the binning technique in the computational efficiency.
