el.test.wt {emplik} R Documentation

## Weighted Empirical Likelihood ratio for mean, uncensored data

### Description

This program is similar to el.test( ) except it takes weights, and is for one dimensional mu.

The mean constraint considered is:

 \sum_{i=1}^n p_i x_i = \mu .

where p_i = \Delta F(x_i) is a probability. Plus the probability constraint:  \sum p_i =1.

The weighted log empirical likelihood been maximized is

 \sum_{i=1}^n w_i \log p_i.

### Usage

el.test.wt(x, wt, mu, usingC=TRUE)


### Arguments

 x a vector containing the observations. wt a vector containing the weights. mu a real number used in the constraint, weighted mean value of f(X). usingC TRUE: use C function, which may be benifit when sample size is large; FALSE: use pure R function.

### Details

This function used to be an internal function. It becomes external because others may find it useful elsewhere.

The constant mu must be inside ( \min x_i , \max x_i )  for the computation to continue.

### Value

A list with the following components:

 x the observations. wt the vector of weights. prob The probabilities that maximized the weighted empirical likelihood under mean constraint.

### Examples

## example with tied observations
x <- c(1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 1, 2, 4.5)
d <- c(1,   1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0,   1)
el.cen.EM(x,d,mu=3.5)
