Re: st: Producing random numbers from a kernel density
If you have data you are thinking of running -kdensity- on, can you
just sample with replacement (-help bsample-) from the data? Or is it
necessary for your problem to have a smooth pdf with no atoms,
estimated from the data, to draw the numbers from?
