 testcoef.env R Documentation

## Hypothesis test of the coefficients of the response envelope model

### Description

This function tests the null hypothesis L * beta * R = A versus the alternative hypothesis L * beta * R ~= A, where beta is estimated under the response envelope model.

### Usage

```testcoef.env(m, L, R, A)
```

### Arguments

 `m` A list containing estimators and other statistics inherited from env. `L` The matrix multiplied to beta on the left. It is a d1 by r matrix, while d1 is less than or equal to r. `R` The matrix multiplied to beta on the right. It is a p by d2 matrix, while d2 is less than or equal to p. `A` The matrix on the right hand side of the equation. It is a d1 by d2 matrix.

Note that inputs `L`, `R` and `A` must be matrices, if not, use `as.matrix` to convert them.

### Details

This function tests for hypothesis H0: L beta R = A, versus Ha: L beta R != A. The beta is estimated by the envelope model. If L = Ir, R = Ip and A = 0, then the test is equivalent to the standard F test on if beta = 0. The test statistic used is vec(L beta R - A) hatSigma^-1 vec(L beta R - A)^T, where beta is the envelope estimator and hatSigma is the estimated asymptotic covariance of vec(L beta R - A). The reference distribution is chi-squared distribution with degrees of freedom d1 * d2.

### Value

The output is a list that contains following components.

 `chisqStatistic` The test statistic. `dof` The degrees of freedom of the reference chi-squared distribution. `pValue` p-value of the test. `covMatrix` The covariance matrix of vec(L beta R).

### Examples

```data(wheatprotein)
X <- wheatprotein[, 8]
Y <- wheatprotein[, 1:6]
m <- env(X, Y, 1)
m

L <- diag(6)
R <- as.matrix(1)
A <- matrix(0, 6, 1)

test.res <- testcoef.env(m, L, R, A)
test.res
```
