stabs: Stability Selection with Error Control

Resampling procedures to assess the stability of selected variables with additional finite sample error control for high-dimensional variable selection procedures such as Lasso or boosting. Both, standard stability selection (Meinshausen & Buhlmann, 2010, <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9868.2010.00740.x>) and complementary pairs stability selection with improved error bounds (Shah & Samworth, 2013, <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9868.2011.01034.x>) are implemented. The package can be combined with arbitrary user specified variable selection approaches.
