Liu's method

Description

Distribution function (survival function in fact) of quadratic forms in normal variables using Liu et al.'s method.

Usage

liu(q, lambda, h = rep(1, length(lambda)),
    delta = rep(0, length(lambda)))

Arguments

q

value point at which the survival function is to be evaluated

lambda

distinct non-zero characteristic roots of A.Sigma, i.e. the λ_i's

h

respective orders of multiplicity h_i's of the lambda's

delta

non-centrality parameters δ_i's (should be positive)

Details

New chi-square approximation to the distribution of non-negative definite quadratic forms in non-central normal variables.

Computes P[Q>q] where Q=sum_{j=1}^n lambda_j chi^2(h_j,delta_j).

This method does not work as good as the Imhof's method. Thus Imhof's method should be recommended.

Value

Qq

P[Q>q]
