The bootstrap is an important statistical tool which can be viewed as a simulation-based method of constructing statistical inferences. It provides a simple, practical way of making inferences and also throws light on the ideas of statistical inference. Several different projects can be constructed in this area, including applying the bootstrap in different problems and the empirical evaluation of bootstrap methods.

Suitable for frist year students taking MATH1115/6.
