boot.lowess: Bootstrapping with LOWESS

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s)

View source: R/boot.lowess.R


Sample the original data with replacement and fit LOWESS curves accordingly.


boot.lowess(x, y = NULL, f = 2/3, iter = 3, line.col = "#FF000033", ...)


x, y, f, iter

passed to lowess


the color of the LOWESS lines


other arguments passed to the scatterplot by plot


We keep on resampling the data and finally we will see several bootstrapped LOWESS curves, which may give us a rough idea about a “confidence interval” of the LOWESS fit.
