Description Details Author(s) References


Computes the probability of backtest overfitting


Implements algorithms for computing the probability of backtest overfitting, performance degradation and probability of loss, and first- and second-order stochastic dominance, based on the approach specified in Bailey et al., September 2013. Provides a collection of pre-configured plots based on lattice graphics.
