ConfTests-class: Class "Configuration Tests"

Description Slots Methods Author(s) See Also


ConfTests contains a list of the results of statistical likelihood-ratio tests that evaluate the goodness-of-fit of restricted models against more general ones. Currently, the models implemented are those based on the Normal and Skew-Normal distributions, with the four alternative variance-covariance matrix configurations.



List of test results; each element is an object of class LRTest, with the following components:

ChiSq: Value of the Chi-Square statistics corresponding to the performed test.
df: Degrees of freedom of the Chi-Square statistics.
pvalue: p-value of the Chi-Square statistics value, obtained from the Chi-Square distribution with df degrees of freedom.
H0logLik: Logarithm of the Likelihood function under the null hypothesis.
H1logLik: Logarithm of the Likelihood function under the alternative hypothesis.
