murakami_stat {BWStest} R Documentation

Compute Murakami's test statistic.

Description

Compute one of the modified Baumgartner-Weiss-Schindler test statistics proposed by Murakami, or Neuhauser.

Usage

murakami_stat(x, y, flavor = 0L)

murakami_stat_perms(nx, ny, flavor = 0L)

Arguments

 x a vector of the first sample. y a vector of the second sample. flavor which ‘flavor’ of test statistic. nx the length of x, the first sample. ny the length of y, the second sample.

Details

Given vectors X and Y, computes B_{jX} and B_{jY} for some j as described by Murakami and by Neuhauser, returning either their their average or their average distance. The test statistics approximate the weighted square norm of the difference in CDFs of the two distributions.

The test statistic is based only on the ranks of the input. If the same monotonic transform is applied to both vectors, the result should be unchanged.

The various ‘flavor’s of test statistic are:

0

The statistic of Baumgartner-Weiss-Schindler.

1

Murakami's B_1 statistic, from his 2006 paper.

2

Neuhauser's difference statistic, denoted by Murakami as B_2 in his 2012 paper.

3

Murakami's B_3 statistic, from his 2012 paper.

4

Murakami's B_4 statistic, from his 2012 paper.

5

Murakami's B_5 statistic, from his 2012 paper, with a log weighting.

Value

The BWS test statistic, B_j. For murakami_stat_perms, a vector of the test statistics for all permutations of the input.

Note

NA and NaN are not yet dealt with!
