mdm_test {EDMeasure} R Documentation

## Mutual Independence Tests

### Description

mdm_test tests mutual independence of all components in X, where each component contains one variable (univariate) or more variables (multivariate). All tests are implemented as permutation tests.

### Usage

mdm_test(X, dim_comp = NULL, num_perm = NULL, type = "comp_simp")


### Arguments

 X A matrix or data frame, where rows represent samples, and columns represent variables. dim_comp The numbers of variables contained by all components in X. If omitted, each component is assumed to contain exactly one variable. num_perm The number of permutation samples drawn to approximate the asymptotic distributions of mutual dependence measures. If omitted, an adaptive number is used. type The type of mutual dependence measures, including asym_dcov: asymmetric measure \mathcal{R}_n based on distance covariance \mathcal{V}_n; sym_dcov: symmetric measure \mathcal{S}_n based on distance covariance \mathcal{V}_n; comp: complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n based on complete V-statistics; comp_simp: simplified complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n^\star based on incomplete V-statistics; asym_comp: asymmetric measure \mathcal{J}_n based on complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n; asym_comp_simp: simplified asymmetric measure \mathcal{J}_n^\star based on simplified complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n^\star; sym_comp: symmetric measure \mathcal{I}_n based on complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n; sym_comp_simp: simplified symmetric measure \mathcal{I}_n^\star based on simplified complete measure \mathcal{Q}_n^\star. From experiments, asym_dcov, sym_dcov, comp_simp are recommended.

### Value

mdm_test returns a list including the following components:

 stat The value of the mutual dependence measure. pval The p-value of the mutual independence test.

### Examples

## Not run:
# X is a 10 x 3 matrix with 10 samples and 3 variables
X <- matrix(rnorm(10 * 3), 10, 3)

# assume X = (X1, X2) where X1 is 1-dim, X2 is 2-dim
mdm_test(X, dim_comp = c(1, 2), type = "asym_dcov")

# assume X = (X1, X2) where X1 is 2-dim, X2 is 1-dim
mdm_test(X, dim_comp = c(2, 1), type = "sym_dcov")

# assume X = (X1, X2, X3) where X1 is 1-dim, X2 is 1-dim, X3 is 1-dim
mdm_test(X, dim_comp = c(1, 1, 1), type = "comp_simp")
