"""
Univariate Kernel Density Estimator.
Parameters
----------
endog : array_like
The variable for which the density estimate is desired.
Notes
-----
If cdf, sf, cumhazard, or entropy are computed, they are computed based on
the definition of the kernel rather than the FFT approximation, even if
the density is fit with FFT = True.
`KDEUnivariate` is much faster than `KDEMultivariate`, due to its FFT-based
implementation. It should be preferred for univariate, continuous data.
`KDEMultivariate` also supports mixed data.

kdensity, kdensityfft
Examples
--------
>>> import statsmodels.api as sm
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> nobs = 300
>>> np.random.seed(1234) # Seed random generator
>>> dens = sm.nonparametric.KDEUnivariate(np.random.normal(size=nobs))
>>> dens.fit()
>>> plt.plot(dens.cdf)

Attach the density estimate to the KDEUnivariate class.
Parameters
----------
kernel : str
The Kernel to be used. Choices are:
- "biw" for biweight
- "cos" for cosine
- "epa" for Epanechnikov
- "gau" for Gaussian.
- "tri" for triangular
- "triw" for triweight
- "uni" for uniform
bw : str, float, callable
The bandwidth to use. Choices are:
- "scott" - 1.059 * A * nobs ** (-1/5.), where A is
`min(std(x),IQR/1.34)`
- "silverman" - .9 * A * nobs ** (-1/5.), where A is
`min(std(x),IQR/1.34)`
- "normal_reference" - C * A * nobs ** (-1/5.), where C is
calculated from the kernel. Equivalent (up to 2 dp) to the
"scott" bandwidth for gaussian kernels. See bandwidths.py
- If a float is given, its value is used as the bandwidth.
- If a callable is given, it's return value is used.
The callable should take exactly two parameters, i.e.,
fn(x, kern), and return a float, where:
* x - the clipped input data
* kern - the kernel instance used
fft : bool
Whether or not to use FFT. FFT implementation is more
computationally efficient. However, only the Gaussian kernel
is implemented. If FFT is False, then a 'nobs' x 'gridsize'
intermediate array is created.
gridsize : int
If gridsize is None, max(len(x), 50) is used.
cut : float
Defines the length of the grid past the lowest and highest values
of x so that the kernel goes to zero. The end points are
``min(x) - cut * adjust * bw`` and ``max(x) + cut * adjust * bw``.
adjust : float
An adjustment factor for the bw. Bandwidth becomes bw * adjust.
Returns
-------
KDEUnivariate
The instance fit,

This follows Silverman (1982) with changes suggested by Jones and Lotwick
(1984). However, the discretization step is replaced by linear binning
of Fan and Marron (1994). This should be extended to accept the parts
that are dependent only on the data to speed things up for
cross-validation.
