is.f

Description

judge if the data obeys f-distribution.

Usage

1
is.f(x, m, a, k1 = NULL, k2 = NULL)

Arguments

x

data

m

the number of intervals you want to divide the data in, default value is 10

a

significance level

k1

the first degree of feedom

k2

the second degree of freedom

Details

Given a set of observations from a certain distribution, this function is used to test whether the observations are from a distribution of f distribution or not. Usually, to ensure the function works well, the sample size needs to be large enough, i.e. the result will be stable if the sample size is larger than 100. The function will work better if the number of intervals you choose to divide the data in is between 10 and 20. This number cannot excess the number of given oberservation.

Value

if the data possibly obeys f-distribution, return a value named qchisq which represents the possibility. The larger qchisq is, the larger the possibility will be; else return -1.

Note

please pay attention to the definition of parameters in our functions.
