Epanechnikov kernel

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
A discontinuous parabola kernel that is used in contouring areal density of data points in a crossplot. The kernel function can take many other forms, such as triangular, rectangular or Gaussian. The function determines the shape of the bump or cluster of data under scrutiny. This technology is often used in cluster analysis and statistical graphic techniques.
