postmys(n,dq,sd,eps1,eps2,tol)
n |
sample size |
dq |
mean within-pair difference observed in the sample under analysis |
sd |
square root of the sample variance of the within-pair differences |
eps1 |
absolute value of the left-hand limit of the hypothetical equivalence range for δ/σ_D |
eps2 |
right-hand limit of the hypothetical equivalence range for δ/σ_D |
tol |
tolerance for the error induced through truncating the range of integration on the right |
The program uses 96-point Gauss-Legendre quadrature.
