"times" argument in createdatapartition function

Is the times argument in the createdatapartition function used to create monte Carlo simulations?
I mean when we use a value of more than 1

It's resampling which I guess could be considered a Monte Carlo simulation. It is making different variations of the data set using the original data (i.e. not purely simulated by sampling a theoretical distribution).

Thanks, Max for the reply
this is another form of Monte Carlo simulation where I can have control of the number of simulations, correct?

iris_sub <- iris %>% sample_n(size = 50, replace = TRUE)

That is bootstrapping.

Do you know a way which can perform Monte Carlo simulation in a way which controls the sample size?
