## Goodness of fit test for grouped data

### Description

Goodness of fit test for grouped data.

### Usage

group.gof(g, ni, m, k, dist = "vm", rads = FALSE, R = 999, ncores = 1)


### Arguments

 g A vector with the group points, either in radians or in degrees. ni The frequency of each or group class. m The mean direction in radians or in degrees. k The concentration parameter, \kappa. dist The distribution to be tested, it can be either "vm" or "uniform". rads If the data are in radians, this should be TRUE and FALSE otherwise. R The number of bootstrap simulations to perform, set to 999 by default. ncores The number of cores to use.

### Details

When you have grouped data, you can test whether the data come from the von Mises-Fisher distribution or from a uniform distribution.

### Value

This is an "htest"class object. Thus it returns a list including:

 statistic The test statistic value. parameter Since this is a bootstrap based test, there are no degrees of freedom, hence this is "NA". p.value The p-value of the test. alternative A character with the alternative hypothesis. method A character with the test used. data.name A character vector with two elements.

### Examples

x <- rvonmises(100, 2, 10)
g <- seq(min(x) - 0.1, max(x) + 0.1, length = 6)
ni <- as.vector( table( cut(x, g) ) )
group.gof(g, ni, 2, 10, dist = "vm", rads = TRUE, R = 299, ncores = 1)
group.gof(g, ni, 2, 5, dist = "vm", rads = TRUE, R = 299, ncores = 1)
