## The one-sample population inference

### Description

Identify the nonzero partial correlations in one-sample population, based on controlling the rate of the false discovery proportion (FDP) exceeding c0 at \alpha, considering time dependence. Input a popEst class object returned by population.est.

### Usage

population.test(
popEst,
alpha = 0.05,
c0 = 0.1,
targetSet = NULL,
MBT = 5000,
simplify = !is.null(targetSet)
)


### Arguments

 popEst A popEst class object. alpha significance level, default value is 0.05. c0 threshold of the exceedance rate of FDP, default value is 0.1. A smaller value of c0 will reduce false positives, but it may also cost more false negatives. targetSet a two-column matrix. Each row contains two index corresponding to a pair of variables of interest. If NULL, any pair of two variables is considered to be of interest. MBT times of multiplier bootstrap, default value is 5000. simplify a logical indicating whether results should be simplified if possible.

### Value

If simplify is FALSE, a p*p matrix with values 0 or 1 is returned, and 1 means nonzero.

And if simplify is TRUE, a two-column matrix is returned, indicating the row index and the column index of recovered nonzero partial correlations. We only retain the results which the row index is less than the column index. Those with larger test statistics are sorted first.

### Examples

## Quick example for the one-sample population inference
data(popsimA)
# estimating partial correlation coefficients by scaled lasso
pc = population.est(popsimA)
# conducting hypothesis test
Res = population.test(pc)
# conducting hypothesis test in variables of interest
set = cbind(rep(7:9, each = 10), 1:10)
Res_like = population.test(pc, targetSet = set)
