  1. aConfidence intervals for the polar transformation method as determined by bootstrap resampling with replacement. See text for details.
  2. bData points in this category were classified with confidence exceeding 99.9% as estimated via bootstrap resampling.
  3. cTotal confidence was determined as shown in calculating 1-Pr(error).
