  quanf(n,p,alpha)

Arguments

n

Number of rows of the data matrix.

p

Number of columns of the data matrix.

alpha

Numeric parameter controlling the size of the active subsets, i.e., "h=quanf(alpha,n,p)". Allowed values are between 0.5 and 1 and the default is 0.5.

Value

An integer number of the size of the starting p-subsets.
