DAGpick {cherry}R Documentation

Confidence limits for the number of false hypotheses in a given family of sets.


Calculates confidence limits for the number of false hypotheses on the basis of the DAG procedure within a family of sets.


 DAGpick (DAG, indicators, optimization = "ILP")



DAG object, as returned by the function DAGmethod.


The names or indices of the sets (as specified in the DAGstructure object) for which you want to know the confidence limits. Note that, if there were duplicate sets in the original list, the index can be different from the one in the original list given to construct.


Can be, in ascending order of accuracy and computational costs: "LP" (linear programming) or "ILP" (integer linear programming).


The function DAGpick returns the lower bound of a 1-alpha confidence set for the number of false sets. For the moment, the function can only be used on DAG objects that correspond to a DAG with two-way logical relationships.
