The objective of non-parametric density estimation is the data-based estimation of a pdf that belongs in large class of functions. The corresponding theory has been highly developed during the last decades and has been extensively used in applications in a wide range of fields.
The problem of density estimation has been studied on Euclidean spaces, cubes, spheres, balls and other settings. Sophisticated methods using kernels, wavelets, needlets and smoothness spaces have been used in approaching the problem.
In this talk, we will present the extension of the study on manifolds or more general metric spaces. We will present our resent results and some open problems in the area.
