Bootstrap Scikit for bootstrap confidence interval estimation.

Latest commit ef5752b Constantine Evans Changed behavior of BCa method when statfunction output is equal, and…
… thus the acceleration value undefined. Now ci will warn the user, but return (stat[0],stat[0]) as the confidence interval.


Scikits.bootstrap provides bootstrap confidence interval algorithms for scipy.

At present, it is rather feature-incomplete and in flux. However, the functions that have been written should be relatively stable as far as results.

Much of the code has been written based off the descriptions from Efron and Tibshirani's Introduction to the Bootstrap, and results should match the results obtained from following those explanations. However, the current ABC code is based off of the modified-BSD-licensed R port of the Efron bootstrap code, as I do not believe I currently have a sufficient understanding of the ABC method to write the code independently.

In any case, please contact me (Constantine Evans with any questions or suggestions. I'm trying to add documentation, and will be adding tests as well. I'm especially interested, however, in how the API should actually look; please let me know if you think the package should be organized differently.

Version Info

v0.3.2: This version contains various fixes to allow compatibility with Python 3.3. While I have not used the package extensively with Python 3, all tests now pass, and importing works properly. The compatibility changes slightly modify the output of bootstrap_indexes, from a Python list to a Numpy array that can be iterated over in the same manner. This should only be important in extremely unusual situations.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
