stone.boot: Generate Boostrap Replicates of Stone's Statistic

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

Description

Generate bootstrap replicates of Stone's statictic, by means of function boot from boot package. Notice that these functions should not be used separately but as argument statistic when calling function boot.

stone.boot is used when performing a non-parametric bootstrap.

stone.pboot is used when performing a parametric bootstrap.

Arguments

data

A dataframe with all the data, as explained in the DCluster manual page.

i

Permutation created in non-parametric bootstrap.

...

Additional arguments passed to the functions.

Value

Both functions return the value of the statistic.
