Bootstrapping and R

  1. Apr 24, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have the code:







    And I want to compute this M times for y=8,n=7,sigma=2,a=3,b=1,N=1000,M=10000.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So this is what I wrote:

    >my.sample<-delta(8, 7, 2,3,1,1000)



    +for(i in 1:M)



    >x<-sample(delta, 10000, replace=TRUE)


    But I keep getting errors, so I must be doing something wrong but I'm not sure what.

    In other words, this is how it looks like in R:

    > my.sample<-delta(8, 7, 2,3,1,1000)
    Error in delta(8, 7, 2, 3, 1, 1000) : attempt to apply non-function
    > M<-10000
    > M;d<-numeric(M)
    [1] 10000
    > for(i in 1:M)
    + d=delta(y,n,sigma,a,b,N)
    Error in rlogis(N, a, b) : object 'N' not found
    > {
    + x<-sample(delta, 10000, replace=TRUE)
    + M;d<-mean(x)}
    Error in x[.Internal(sample(length(x), size, replace, prob))] :
    object of type 'closure' is not subsettable

    I've been trying to fix this for a long time, and it's really frustrating...any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
