Thank you very much for your reply.

From inspection of the code (-adotype kdensity-), it looks as though the
default range is [(min(x)-h);(max(x)+h)]; i.e. from the min value of your
sample minus the bandwidth to the max value of your sample plus the

Dear All,

I have a short question about -kdensity-. What is the default
interval in
which the points of estimation are chosen? It does not appear to be
[min,max] where min=the minimum observed value in the data, and max=
maximum observed value in the data; rather, it appears to be slightly
an interval. (I have been unable to find this information in the
documentation.) What is the exact rule which chooses the limits of
(default) range?

Thank you for your support.
