Each time series [s.sub.1] (i = 1,2, ..., S) has been artificially replicated B = 125 times using the bootstrap scheme outlined in Section 3.2 (the simulations have been implemented using the software R (8.1 version) and performed using the hardware resources of the University of California, San Diego; in particular, the computer server EULER (maintained by the Mathematical Department) and the supercomputer IBM-TERAGRID have been employed).
Alternatively one can use a different bootstrap scheme, such as the stationary bootstrap of Politis and Romano (1994).
Alternatively one can define [??]([x]) to be its analytical value under the bootstrap scheme that is employed.
