# permutations "partykit"

Hello,

I am new to R and I was reading about conditional decision trees.
In the "party" package there is an option to select number of permutations (nresample=...). However, that is not the case with "partykit".

So does it use permutations, even if it is a constant number and I can't specify a different number? Or not?

I couldn't find an answer online.

Thanks

I am not familiar with conditional decision trees or the use of permutations in trees? Can you talk a little about these aspects.

Have a look at:

Code:
vignette("ctree", package = "partykit")
which gives an overview of crtree differences between the two packages.

In partykit, the argument "testtype" does not allow montecarlo as it does in party, hence no option for the number of resamples.
