    Boot strapping

    This week's lab is all about boot strapping. You have seen the R command $$bootstrap(x,nboot,theata)$$

    Why do you use bootstrapping?

    Bootstrapping allows assigning measures of accuracy (defined in terms of bias, variance, confidence intervals, prediction error or some other such measure) to sample estimates

    So what?

    Resampling allows you to avoid equations and reduce assumptions. However, it doesn't help with all issues. Just an overview of bootstrap and stuff.
