can you recommend papers where a weighted version of the density measure
is used (along the lines of Scott 2000: 73ff. and Wasserman/Faust 1994:
143)? I am particularly interested in literature where differences
between continuous attribute data are modeled as edge weights and where
weighted density is then used like an alternative measure of dispersion
(like standard deviation or variance).
More specifically, we are running experiments where a couple of players
each contribute a certain amount of money to a public good over ten
rounds. We would like to measure the homogeneity of the contributions in
each round, and it seems that weighted density would capture this kind
of homogeneity more accurately than measures of dispersion.
