This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-cran-sm package of sm, a set of
functions for kernel smoothing methods for GNU R. Sm was written by
Adrian W. Bowman and Adelchi Azzalini, and ported to R by B. D. Ripley.
This package was created by Dirk Eddelbuettel <firstname.lastname@example.org>.

The package was renamed from its upstream name 'sm to 'r-cran-sm to
highlight the fact that is it a CRAN package for R.

by Adrian W. Bowman & Adelchi Azzalini,
published by Oxford University Press, 1997.
It consists of two parts: the `sm library', and the `scripts'.
The sm library is a suite of S-Plus routines. The scripts form
a layer of software above the sm library, and provide examples
of its applications.
The `sm` library is copyright of A.W.Bowman & A.Azzalini (1997,
2000) except for the exceptions below.
The function sm.density calls the function sm.density.3d
to produce contour plots of three-dimensional density estimates.
This function was originally written by Stuart Young and has
been amended by Adrian Bowman. The copyright of this function
and its subsidiary functions remains with Stuart Young. The
copyright of the Fortran code in the file routines.f is also
held by Stuart Young.
The function sm.sphere was written jointly by Adrian Bowman
and Adrian Hines and copyright is held jointly.
The scripts are copyright of Oxford University Press (1997).
Irrespective of the individual copyrights, this software is usable

can be freely used and re-distributed, but no warranty of any sort is
