tango.boot: Generate Bootstrap Replicated of Tango's Statistic

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

Description

Generate bootstrap replicated of Tango's statistic for general clustering, by means of function boot from boot library. Notice that these functions should not be used separately but as argument statistic when calling function boot.

tango.boot is used when performing non-parametric bootstrap.

tango.pboot must be used for parametric bootstrap.

Usage

Arguments

data

Dataframe with the data as described in DCluster.

i

Permutation generated by the non-parametric boostrap procedure.

...

Additional arguments passed when performing a bootstrap.

Value

Both functions return the value of the statistic.
