Juliusz Jabłecki <juliusz.jablecki@student.uw.edu.pl>: I don't see how not plotting points near the boundary saves the smoother from the main criticism concerning the unjustified imputation of zeros, since the choice of how many points near the boundary should be excluded depends on b and E(X) among other things, but the following easy illustrations may convince you to normalize the sum of weights, anyway: clear set seed 12042007 set obs 240 g t=_n g x=t+invnorm(uniform()) g yours=. g mine=. local b=.5 forv i=1/240 { g w=(1-`b')/(1+`b')*(`b')^abs(t-`i') g wx=x*w g sumwx=sum(wx) g sumw=sum(w) qui replace yours=sumwx[_N] in `i' qui replace mine=sumwx[_N]/sumw[_N] in `i' drop w wx sumwx sumw } sc x t, mc(gs14)||line y m t||function y=x,ra(t) line x y m t in 230/240, name(end) g rw=sum(invnorm(uniform())) forv i=1/240 { g w=(1-`b')/(1+`b')*(`b')^abs(t-`i') g wx=rw*w g sumwx=sum(wx) g sumw=sum(w) qui replace yours=sumwx[_N] in `i' qui replace mine=sumwx[_N]/sumw[_N] in `i' drop w wx sumwx sumw } sc rw t, mc(gs14)||line y m t, name(ex2) line rw y m t in 230/240, name(end2) Also, note that the Statalist FAQ exhorts you to use complete refs: Robert E.
