Percentile

Optimized sample variance

Draws an optimal sample that minimizes or maximizes the sample variance

Usage
optimized.sample.variance(x, n, type = "maximized")
Arguments
x

A vector to draw a sample from

n

Number of samples to draw

type

Type of sample variance optimization c("maximized", "minimized")

Value

A data.frame with "idx" representing the index of the original vector and "y" is the value of the sampled data
