p-value for the Utsu's test

Share:

Description

This function calculates the p-value for the Utsu's test from 2 values of b and 2 sample sizes.

Usage

1
utcomp(b1, n1, b2, n2)

Arguments

b1

b-value from the first sample

n1

size of the first sample (number of data above or equal to the threshold magnitude in the first data set)

b2

b-value from the second sample

n2

size of the second sample (number of data above or equal to the threshold magnitude in the second data set)

Details

The formula is given in Utsu's (1992, 1999).

Value

utcomp returns the p-value of the Utsu's test for the comparison of 2 b-values.
