Computations of Bayesian t-values for multiple comparisons

Description

A Bayes rule for the symmetric multiple comparisons problem.

Usage

waller(K, q, f, Fc)

Arguments

K

Is the loss ratio between type I and type II error

q

Numerator Degrees of freedom

f

Denominator Degrees of freedom

Fc

F ratio from an analysis of variance

Details

K-RATIO (K): value specifies the Type 1/Type 2 error seriousness ratio for the Waller-Duncan test. Reasonable values for KRATIO are 50, 100, and 500, which roughly correspond for the two-level case to ALPHA levels of 0.1, 0.05, and 0.01. By default, the procedure uses the default value of 100.

Value

Waller value for the Waller and Duncan test.
