EQUIVNONINF-package {EQUIVNONINF}R Documentation

Testing for equivalence and noninferiority


The package makes available in R the complete set of programs accompanying S. Wellek's (2010) monograph "Testing Statistical Hypotheses of Equivalence and Noninferiority. Second Edition" (Chapman&Hall/CRC).


In order to keep execution time of all examples below the limit set by the CRAN administration, in a number of cases the function calls shown in the documentation contain specifications which are insufficient for real applications. This holds in particular true for the width sw of search grids, which should be chosen to be .001 or smaller. Similarly, the maximum number of interval halving steps to be carried out in finding maximally admissible significance levels should be set to values >= 10.
