Hi Regarding the function SmoothKernelDistribution I'm aware that it is possible to compute the kernel pdf of some data. In order to do so Mathematica computes the bandwidth parameter if it is not provided. I was wondering if it is possible to retrieve the value of the computed bandwidth parameter somehow. I was unable to do so, but I think it is possible since Mathematica is computing and using it in order to compute the kernel pdf. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance for help. Here is an example: data=RandomReal[1,1000]; dist= SmoothKernelDistribution[data, "LeastSquaresCrossValidation", "Epanechnikov"]; Plot[PDF[dist, x], {x, -1, 1}, Filling -> Axis, Exclusions -> None]
