R Resample Package (303401)

*Tim Hesterberg, Google 

Keywords: Resampling, bootstrap, permutation test

This is an introduction to the resample package in R, which makes it easy to do common resampling methods - one and two sample bootstrap, jackknife, and permutation tests. It also handles some important practical details, like correcting for the small-sample bias of bootstrap methods (confidence intervals that are too narrow and under-cover).
