Abstract: scdensity is an implementation of the self-consistent density estimator as described in Bernacchia & Pigolotti (JRSS B, 2011). The self-consistent method is a non-parametric way to estimate a density from a number of data points without relying on any a-priori fixation of parameters like smoothing parameters in kernel density estimation, for example.
