Individuals are free to
use the codes for the purpose academic

Unless otherwise specified, the author of the

you find errors in the codes.

Matlab and R codes for computing
deconvolution kernel density estimator
and errorsinvariable regression
estimator (data with measurement errors,
errorsinvariables) and datadriven
bandwidths. Corrects the numerous errors
of the R package "decon", especially for
the datadriven bandwidths.
WARNING: These are simplified Matlab
codes which do not use Fast Fourier
Transform. The codes used in my papers
were written in C using FFT, which is
faster.
