## Piecewise smooth regression by bootstrapped binary segmentation

### Description

Provides methods for piecewise smooth regression. The main function `BinSegBstrap`

estimates a piecewise smooth signal by applying a bootstrapped test recursively (binary segmentation approach). A single bootstrapped test for the hypothesis that the underlying signal is smooth versus the alternative that the underlying signal contains at least one change-point can be performed by the function `BstrapTest`

. A single change-point is estimated by the function `estimateSingleCp`

. More details can be found in the vignette. Parts of this work were inspired by Gijbels and Goderniaux (2004).
