bi1st {EQUIVNONINF}R Documentation

Critical constants and power of the UMP test for equivalence of a single binomial proportion to some given reference value

Description

The function computes the critical constants defining the uniformly most powerful (randomized) test for the problem p ≤ p_1 or p ≥ p_2 versus p_1 < p < p_2, with p denoting the parameter of a binomial distribution from which a single sample of size n is available. In the output, one also finds the power against the alternative that the true value of p falls on the midpoint of the hypothetical equivalence interval (p_1 , p_2).

Usage

Value

alpha

significance level
