DMKV.test(x, y, difmu = 0, sdx, sdy,
          alternative = c("two.sided", "less", "greater"), conf.level = 0.95,
          ...)

Arguments

x

numerical vector (non-empty) that contains the data of the first sample.

y

numerical vector (non-empty) containing the data of the second sample.

difmu

numeric value indicating the value of the difference in population means between the two samples.

sdx

numerical value indicating the population standard deviation of the first sample, which is assumed to be known (mandatory).

sdy

numeric value indicating the population standard deviation of the second sample, which is assumed to be known (mandatory).

alternative

a character string specifying the alternative hypothesis, must be one of "two.sided" (default), "greater" or "less". You can specify just the initial letter.

conf.level

confidence level of the interval.

...

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

Value

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:

statistic

the value of the test statistic.

parameter

sample lenghts and population standard deviations.

p.value

the p-value for the test.

conf.int

intervalo de confianza para la diferencia de medias con varianzas poblacionales conocidas asociado a la hip<f3>tesis alternativa especificada.

estimate

the estimated difference in means.

null.value

the specified hypothesized value of the mean difference.

alternative

a character string describing the alternative hypothesis.

method

a character string indicating what type of statistical method was performed.

data.name

a character string giving the name(s) of the data.
