We propose a bootstrap version of a bispectrum-based test for departure from Gaussianity that achieves high power while maintaining the level of significance, even for small sample sizes. The proposed procedure can be also used to set confidence bands for a measure of the bicoherence of stationary random signals.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
