Hypothesis test of the coefficients of the envelope model


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


testcoef.pois.env(m, L, A)



A list containing estimators and other statistics inherited from pois.env.


The matrix multiplied to beta on the left. It is a d1 by p matrix, while d1 is less than or equal to p.


The matrix on the right hand side of the equation. It is a d1 by 1 matrix.

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


This function tests for hypothesis H0: L beta = A, versus Ha: L beta != A. The beta is estimated by the envelope model in predictor space. If L = 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 - A) hatSigma^-1 vec(L beta - A)^T, where beta is the envelope estimator and hatSigma is the estimated asymptotic covariance of vec(L beta - A). The reference distribution is chi-squared distribution with degrees of freedom d1.


The output is a list that contains following components.


The test statistic.


The degrees of freedom of the reference chi-squared distribution.


p-value of the test.


The covariance matrix of vec(L beta).
