Description

Collection of stepwise procedures to conduct multiple hypotheses testing. The details of the stepwise algorithm can be found in Romano and Wolf (2007) <DOI:10.1214/009053606000001622> and Hsu, Kuan, and Yen (2014) <DOI:10.1093/jjfinec/nbu014>.

Usage

1
2
FWERkControl(test_stat, boot_stat, k, alpha)
FDPControl(test_stat, boot_stat, gamma, alpha)

Arguments

test_stat

m x 1 column vector of test statistics

boot_stat

m x B matrix of bootstrap statistics

k

Number of false rejections

gamma

False discovery proportion

alpha

The desired FWER(k) or FDP level

Value

Reject: A 0/1 numeric vector where the element j equals 1 indicates the model j is significant.

CV: The critical value.
