#3038: [accumulators] Empty histogram
  Reporter: Robert Kubrick <robertkubrick_at_[hidden]> | Owner: eric_niebler
      Type: Bugs | Status: closed
 Milestone: Boost 1.40.0 | Component: accumulator
   Version: Boost 1.38.0 | Severity: Problem
Resolution: wontfix | Keywords: histogram density
Changes (by eric_niebler):

  * status: assigned => closed
  * resolution: => wontfix


 According to Matthias Troyer:

   It actually makes sense, since the density estimator first needs to
 collect a certain number of samples before it can make an educated guess
 about the locations and widths of histogram bins. It does not make sense
 to inquire the density before that.

 Therefore, this is not a bug by by design. I have now documented the
 precondition on density result extraction, both in the code and in the
 users' guide (see changelist [53405]).
