Abstract : In a previous paper, we studied a kernel estimate of the upper edge of a two-dimensional bounded set, based upon the extreme values of a Poisson point process. The initial paper "Geffroy J. (1964) Sur un problème d'estimation géométrique.Publications de l'Institut de Statistique de l'Université de Paris, XIII, 191-200" on the subject treats the frontier as the boundary of the support set for a density and the points as a random sample. We claimed in"Girard, S. and Jacob, P. (2004) Extreme values and kernel estimates of point processes boundaries.ESAIM: Probability and Statistics, 8, 150-168" that we are able to deduce the random sample case fr om the point process case. The present note gives some essential indications to this end, including a method which can be of general interest.
