The estimating function bootstrap

  title={The estimating function bootstrap},
  author={HU Feifang and John D. Kalbfleisch},
The authors propose a bootstrap procedure which estimates the distribution of an estimating function by resampling its terms using bootstrap techniques. Studentized versions of this so-called estimating function (EF) bootstrap yield methods which are invariant under reparametrizations. This approach often has substantial advantage, both in computation and accuracy, over more traditional bootstrap methods and it applies to a wide class of practical problems where the data are independent but not… CONTINUE READING
