Description of the nonparametric score function for distance-based kernel function and continuous outcome.
score_cont_nonparam(outcome, dist_mat, grid_gran = 5000)
outcome |
a numeric vector containing the continuous outcome variable (in the same ID order as dist_mat) |
dist_mat |
a square distance matrix |
grid_gran |
a numeric value specifying the grid search length, preset to 5000 |
This is the main function that calculates the p-value associated with a
nonparametric kernel test of association between the kernel and continuous
outcome variable. A null model (where the kernel is not associated with the
outcome) is initially fit. Then, the variance of
Y_{i}|X_{i}
is used as the basis for the
score test,
S\left(\rho\right) = \frac{Q_{\tau}\left(\hat{\beta_0},\rho\right)-\mu_Q}{\sigma_Q}.
However,
because \rho
disappears under the null hypothesis, we run a grid search over a range of values of \rho
(the bounds
of which were derived by Liu et al. in 2008). This grid search gets the upper bound for the score test's p-value.
This function is tailored for the underlying model
y_{i} = h\left(z_{i}\right) + e_{i},
where
h\left(\cdot\right)
is
the kernel function, z_{i}
is a multidimensional array of variables, and y_{i}
is a continuous outcome taking values in
in the real numbers.
The function returns an numeric p-value for the kernel score test of association.
