Abstract : The projection pursuit methodology is applied to the multivariate density estimation problem. The resulting nonparametric procedure is often less biased than kernel and near neighbor methods and does not require the specification of a metric on the data measurement space. In addition, graphical information is produced that can be used to help gain geometric insight into the multivariate data distribution. (Author)
