Harmonic Average

In mathematics, an average used primarily for calculating an average rate, such as an average interest rate. It is calculated as the reciprocal of an arithmetic mean with inverse values. It is also known as the harmonic mean.

In this study we tested kernel estimators, and compared them to the harmonic mean that has performed best of the other home range estimators tested (Boulanger and White 1990).
Our research compared estimates of home range size and shape that result from the various kernel methods and from the harmonic mean method.
Assuming that other factors are approximately constant over time, then a simpler approach is to use the harmonic mean of N to estimate the average [N.
