> I need help with another problem I am having that deals with the generation of vectors that I asked about yesterday. I now need to have each value in the vector (all values either 1 or -1) have a probability p that it will switch signs (so, say, each value has a 50% chance of switching from -1 to 1 or visa versa). What would be the best way to go about doing this? Thank-you!!
Say you have a vector v, you can generate another vector randomly by
w <- sample(c(-1, 1), length(v), replace=TRUE)
and multiply v with w.

One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture
