Implements the vine copula based kernel density estimator of
Nagler and Czado (2016)
This package implements a vine copula based kernel density estimator. The estimator does not suffer from the curse of dimensionality and is therefore well suited for high-dimensional applications (see, Nagler and Czado, 2016). The package is built on top of the copula density estimators in kdecopula and let's you choose from all its implemented methods. The package can handle discrete and categorical data via continuous convolution.

A detailed description of of all functions and options can be found in the API documentaion. In short, the package provides the following functionality:
kdevine and its methods:
kdevine(): Multivariate kernel density estimation based on vine copulas. Implements the estimator of (see, Nagler and Czado, 2016).
rkdevine(): Density and simulation functions.
kdevinecop and its methods:
kdevinecop(): Kernel estimator for the vine copula density (see, Nagler and Czado, 2016).
rkdevinecop(): Density and simulation functions.
contour.kdevinecop(): Matrix of contour plots of all pair-copulas.
kde1d and its methods:
kde1d(): Univariate kernel density estimation for bounded and unbounded support.
rkde1d(): Density, cdf, and simulation functions.
lines.kde1d(): Plots the estimated density.

The kdevine package is no longer actively developed. Consider using
vinecop()from the 'rvinecopulib' package as replacements for
rkde1d()for discrete data.
kspackage (and thereby its dependencies like rgl) by calling
KernSmooth::dpik()directly instead of
plot.kde1dtype for continuous data (was shown as histogram).
support for discrete variables based on continuous convolution (using R package cctools).
