View source: R/cUmbrPK.R

Description

This function computes the critical value for the Mack-Wolfe Peak Known A_p distribution at (or typically in the "Exact" case, close to) the given alpha level. The function generalizes Harding's (1984) algorithm to quickly generate the distribution.

Usage

1
cUmbrPK(alpha, n, peak=NA, method=NA, n.mc=10000)

Arguments

alpha

A numeric value between 0 and 1.

n

A vector of numeric values indicating the size of each of the k data groups.

peak

An integer representing the known peak among the data groups.

method

Either "Exact" or "Asymptotic", indicating the desired distribution. When method=NA, if sum(n)<=200, the "Exact" method will be used to compute the A_p distribution. Otherwise, the "Asymptotic" method will be used.

n.mc

Not used. Only included for standardization with other critical value procedures in the NSM3 package.

Value

Returns a list with "NSM3Ch6c" class containing the following components:

n

number of observations in the k data groups

cutoff.U

upper tail cutoff at or below user-specified alpha

true.alpha.U

true alpha level corresponding to cutoff.U (if method="Exact")
