TITLE
      'BIDENSITY': module to produce and graph bivariate density estimates

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      
       bidensity produces bivariate kernel density estimates and graphs
      the result using  a twoway contourline plot, optionally
      overlaying a scatterplot.  The default kernel is Epanechnikov;
      all of the kernels provided by -kdensity- are also available.
      Compared to Baum's -kdens2- (SSC), which was recently enhanced to
      produce contourline plots,   -bidensity- computes the bivariate
      kernel densities much more efficiently through use of Mata, and
      provides a choice of kernel estimators. The estimated densities
      can be saved in a Stata   dataset or accessed as Mata matrices.
