Particular Performance Between the Fuzzy Set and Univariate Balloon Estimators of the Density Function

Jesús A. Fajardo


In this paper we propose a criterion to estimate the density function by means of a nonparametric and fuzzy set estimator, based on n i.i.d random variable, obtaining a reduction of the asymptotic mean integrated square error of the fuzzy set estimator regarding the
asymptotic mean integrated square error of the univariate balloon estimator for all order-p kernels. This reduction shows that the fuzzy set estimator has better performance than the univariate balloon estimator. Finally, these theoretical findings are illustrated using a
numerical example.

We have provided the online access of all issues and papers to the indexing agencies (as given on journal web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information.
