Bootstrap


Please complete with the meaning of bootstrap in "bootstrap aggregating" expression seen in the "bagging" (a short for the expression) method for sample training enhance, mainly used in decision trees constructions?

Uh, I think something is missing...[edit]

The very first Google result for the word "bootstrap" is Wikipedia's article on Bootstrapping (Statistics). The statistics-related definition seems to be nowhere to be found here. The reason I am not fixing this is I don't know exactly what the definition should be. Somebody who knows should probably add this one... (I'm also pretty sure this is related to "bootstrap aggregating" in the above comment). --24.189.100.241 01:43, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
