The Bootstrap method is a nonparametric statistical technique for estimating the sampling distribution of estimators of unknown parameters. While the asymptotic theory for bootstrap is well established, this thesis investigates the behavior of the bootstrap for small sample sizes. For the exponential distribution and for normal linear regression the bootstrap estimates of 'he parameters and their variances are compared with the theoretical sampling distributions. The small sample properties of bootstrap confidence intervals using the percentile method and the bias-corrected percentile method are also investigated.

An analysis of the BOOTSTRAP method for estimating the mean squared error of statistical estimators Cortes-Colon, William (1986-09);One of the most crucial problems in theoretical and applied statistics is to determine the precision of the estimates produced by different statistical estimators. This problem is greatly increased when the population ...
Kan, Hasan Ertam (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-09);"This work accomplishes signal denoising using the Bootstrap method when the additive noise is Gaussian. The noisy signal is separated into frequency bands using the Fourier or Wavelet transform. Each frequency band is ...
