ML.rank.SM {CLAST} | R Documentation |
Calculates the ML estimator for each possible outcome of the sample space generated from a sequential design.
ML.rank.SM(obj)
obj |
a list with elements S, M and design, containing all possible values of total successes S and stopping stage M based on the given design. Typically this is the output of function sample.space or sample.space.2 and will also have elements Y and decision. |
a list with element "lims" as well as all elements of argument obj. The extra element contains the ML estimator of p for each possible outcome.

# Y contains the 364 possible sequential binary outcomes;
# M contains how many stages before the decision;
# S contains the total number of success that produces the decision;
# decision the final binary test result of H0 or H1.
ML.rank.SM(obj=all.samples)$lims
# Component "lims" contains the value of the ML estimate i.e.
# total successes S divided by total trials N. The same ML
# estimator occurs for outcomes with the same values of (S,M).
