skktest: Srivastava-Katayama-Kano test statistic In MethylCapSig: Detection of Differentially Methylated Regions using MethylCap-Seq Data

Description

Calculates the two sample test statistic and p-value for the Srivastava-Katayama-Kano test.

Usage

 1 skktest(X, Y) 

Arguments

 X A matrix of dimension n \times k whose rows represent the samples collected from n individuals from the first group on k variates. Y A matrix of dimension m \times k whose rows correspond to samples collected from m individuals from the second group on k variates. Default value is null. If not specified, the function performs a one-sample test using X.

Details

The Srivastava-Katayama-Kano test statistic is used to test equality of mean vectors for two groups of multivariate observations, where the dimension is greater than the sample size. skktest takes matrices X and Y as arguments whose rows represent samples from two groups respectively. Depending on the values in X and Y, the function initially determines whether to perform a one sample test (∑_{i,j} X_{i,j}^2 = 0 or ∑_{i,j} Y_{i,j}^2 = 0) or a two-sample test. The appropriate test statistic is then calculated and is returned along with the p-value which is calculated using right-tailed normal distribution.

Value

A 2 \times 1 vector consisting of the test statistic and the p-value.
