About this book

Explores the application of bootstrap to problems that place unusual demands on the method. The bootstrap method, introduced by Bradley Efron in 1973, is a nonparametric technique for inferring the distribution of a statistic derived from a sample. Most of the papers were presented at a special meeting sponsored by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Interface Foundation in May, 1990.
