exact.lower.limits.SM {CLAST} | R Documentation |
Calculates Buehler lower limit for all possible data sets based on a provided ranking function.
exact.lower.limits.SM(obj, lims = NULL, alpha = 0.05, set = FALSE)
obj |
list with components $count, $S, $N, typically the output of LR.stats.SM, CP.stats.SM, JT.rank.SM or ML.rank.SM. In this case, it will also have element $lims. |
lims |
a vector of same length as obj$count, most often an approximate lower limits. If this is missing, then it should be an element of obj$lims. |
alpha |
exact coverage error |
set |
If true, exact limits of 1 are replaced by the largest limit less than 1. This will never be chosen by the user and is there for certain numerical investigations. |
A numeric vector of same length as obj$lims, giving the exact lower limit for each possible outcome as listed in components obj$M and obj$S.
