Hi Angelo,

It has been a long-standing open issue to implement fast tree-based
kernel density estimation: https://github.com/mlpack/mlpack/issues/150
But unfortunately there is no implementation available today.

However, if you are just looking for something simple (if vector or pts
is not too big), you can write a loop over all of the points in 'pts' to
calculate the normal distribution value.  There may be a little bit of
complexity involved---I don't know if ksdensity() does auto-tuning of
the bandwidth to be used, etc. (I have not used it before).

One class that may help in mlpack is the GaussianDistribution class in

I hope this helps; let me know if I can clarify anything.
