I'm using "Kernlab" to apply the "Weighted Nadaraya Watson" by Kato (2012)
and Hall, Wolff, and Yao (1999).

I need to find this Gaussian Kernel in weights'calculation , where u=
Kh(u) = h^(−1)*K(u/h).

I used:
rbf1 <- rbfdot(sigma = NULL)

but I have to find out "sigma" as the inverse width. I used “sigest”
function but it is different at each run, and hyperparameter value seem to
be too high..

I have a couple of questions:
1. I must find lambda which maximize: f: sum(log(1+lambda*(x-x0)*Kh(u/h)
    But with rbf1 function I obtain a very small number and the log becames
0 (log of 1+ e^-230 etc)

2. Why I find different hyperparameter for each run? I should impose
set.seed? But why hyperparameter are so high?

3. Which formula I should use for sigma in rbf1?

Thank's in advance.
