BootPos-class: Class for Generation of Bootstrapped Replications of a Time...

Description Details Slots References


BootPos is an S4 class that provides a common interface to different algorithms that can be used for implementation of a block bootstrap procedure in the time domain.


After initialization the bootstrapping can be performed by applying getPositions to the object.

Different block bootstraps are implemented by creating a subclass together with a getPositions method that contains the implementation of the block resampling procedure.

Currently the following implementations are available:

  • MovingBlocks and getPositions-MovingBlocks.
