function [I] = IMMD_DMMD_estimation(Y,ds,co)
%Estimates mutual information (I) using the MMD (maximum mean discrepancy)
%method: I(Y_1,...,Y_d) = MMD(P_Z,P_U), where (i) Z =[F_1(Y_1);...;F_d(Y_d)] is the copula transformation of Y; F_i is the cdf of Y_i, (ii) P_U is the uniform distribution on [0,1]^d, (iii) dim(Y_1) = ... = dim(Y_d) = 1.
%This is a "meta" method, i.e., the MMD estimator can be arbitrary.
%   Y: Y(:,t) is the t^th sample.
%  ds: subspace dimensions.
%  co: initialized mutual information estimator object.
