##### Abstract:

In this talk, we will introduce a new bootstrap algorithm for estimating linear combinations of coefficients in high dimensional threshold ridge regression model. In addition, we will also introduce a new definition about prediction and demonstrate how bootstrap calibration algorithm achieves this goal.
