Hello I am studying the use of GRASS GIS within Qgis and I need a little help with the understanding of the v.kernel module. I didn't find any human help within the manual (very cryptic)

This are my questions:

I have a point data vector and I need to study the density of the points distribuition in my mapset using a bandwith of 1000 meters.

How do I set the parameter , or in other words ... what is this parameter related to ?

What is the correct use of this parameter in relation with the settings of the bandwith ?

Can I simply set the parameter with a value of 1000 ?

Thank you.
