#' JOUSBoost: A package for probability estimation
#'
#' JOUSBoost implements under/oversampling with jittering for probability estimation.
#'  Its intent is to be used to improve probability estimates that come from
#' boosting algorithms (such as AdaBoost), but is modular enough to be used with
#' virtually any classification algorithm from machine learning.
#'
#' For more theoretical background, consult Mease (2007).

#' @format A data frame with 208 observations on 61 variables.  The variables
#'         V1-V60 represent the energy within a certain frequency band, and
#'         are to be used as predictors.  The variable y is a class label, 1
#'         for 'rock' and -1 for 'mine'.
