## Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon Test, Student t-test and Pettit Test

### Description

Compute Rolling Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon Test, Rolling Student t-test and Pettit test for homogeneity, NAs allow.

### Usage

  stu(serie,n_period=10)

man.whi(serie,n_period=10)

pettit(serie,n_period=10)


### Arguments

 serie numeric vector where the breakpoint is looked for n_period an integer specifying the minimal length of a complete period to consider

### Details

man.whi compute Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon Test and stu the Student t-test for all possible breaks in the serie and get the most significant break.In both test NA values are allow.

pettit Compute the Pettit Test for Homogeneity. NA values are allow.

### Value

pettit, man.whi and stu returns a list with the breakpoint index and its p value

breaks

index where the breakpoint is found

p.value

p value of the test

### Examples

  # Make a serie with one breakpoint
x <- c(rnorm(60,1,1),rnorm(40,2,1))

# Look for break using pettit(), man.whi() and stu()
break_prosition_pettit <- pettit(serie = x)
break_prosition_man.whi <- man.whi(serie = x)
break_prosition_stu <- stu(serie = x)

plot(x)
abline(v = break_prosition_pettit$breaks,col='red') abline(v = break_prosition_man.whi$breaks,col='blue')
abline(v = break_prosition_stu\$breaks,col= 'green')
