Description

Calculates the effective slope of the plot at large values and tests the deviation of the largest value from that line (Cox, 2011).

Arguments

p

Vector of p-values.

k

Number of 'top' k values.

Value

local_slope

The estimated local slope of the plot at large values.

test_statistic

The value of the test statistic.

Fvalue

The upper 5% value of the F distribution with 2 and 2k degress of freedom, which is the distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis.

pvalue

The p-value of the test.
