The question "Gaussian kernel density estimation with fixed covariance (with python)" was incorrectly migrated to StackOverflow.
Can we have it restored to Cross-Validated?
Based on this meta question it does not appear as though the original post exhibited the negative criteria listed in the highest-voted answer:
- The question includes tags for things besides a programming language.
- The question could be easily re-stated in English (with no computer code) since the idea that there is just a simple programming option to enable a full covariance-like bandwidth parameter to KDE is not a coherent criticism (there is no such simple programming option and it would involve novel research to create one.)
- The question is not purely mathematical, since it is about data-driven or otherwise covariance based choices in modeling data with KDE process and presumably applies to actual data given the programming references.
Along these lines, from the meta-question I linked above we have:
"Something to notice about most of these examples is that their titles contain technical statistical terms. The presence of such words does not imply the question itself is on topic!"
I am curious if there is community support for the analagous claim: "The presence of programming-language-specific words, tags, or phrases in the title of a question does not imply the question itself is off topic!"
The question does involve a programming language, but as I interpret it, the question asks about a method to employ a more "covariance-like" notion of bandwidth within the Kernel Density Estimation framework.
