optimal_alpha(
  power_function,
  costT1T2 = 1,
  priorH1H0 = 1,
  error = "minimal",
  plot = Superpower_options("plot")
)

Arguments

power_function

Function that outputs the power, calculated with an analytic function.

costT1T2

Relative cost of Type 1 errors vs. Type 2 errors.

priorH1H0

How much more likely a-priori is H1 than H0?

error

Either "minimal" to minimize error rates, or "balance" to balance error rate

plot

When set to TRUE, automatically outputs a plot of alpha (x-axis) and beta (y-axis) error rates

Value

alpha = alpha or Type 1 error that minimizes or balances combined error rates beta = beta or Type 2 error that minimizes or balances combined error rates objective = value that is the result of the minimization, either 0 (for balance) or the combined weighted error rates plot =
