Description

Generic function for the computation of the Kolmogorov distance d_k of two distributions P and Q where the distributions are defined on a finite-dimensional Euclidean space (R^m, B^m) with B^m the Borel-sigma-algebra on R^m. The Kolmogorov distance is defined as

d_k(P,Q)=\sup{|P({y in R^m | y <= x})-Q({y in R^m | y <= x})| | x in R^m}

where is coordinatewise on R^m.

object of class "Distribution" or class "numeric"

Value

Kolmogorov distance of e1 and e2

Methods

e1 = "AbscontDistribution", e2 = "AbscontDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance of two absolutely continuous univariate distributions which is computed using a union of a (pseudo-)random and a deterministic grid.

e1 = "DiscreteDistribution", e2 = "DiscreteDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance of two discrete univariate distributions. The distance is attained at some point of the union of the supports of e1 and e2.

e1 = "AbscontDistribution", e2 = "DiscreteDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance of absolutely continuous and discrete univariate distributions. It is computed using a union of a (pseudo-)random and a deterministic grid in combination with the support of e2.

e1 = "DiscreteDistribution", e2 = "AbscontDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance of discrete and absolutely continuous univariate distributions. It is computed using a union of a (pseudo-)random and a deterministic grid in combination with the support of e1.

e1 = "numeric", e2 = "UnivariateDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance between (empirical) data and a univariate distribution. The computation is based on ks.test.

e1 = "UnivariateDistribution", e2 = "numeric":

Kolmogorov distance between (empirical) data and a univariate distribution. The computation is based on ks.test.

e1 = "AcDcLcDistribution", e2 = "AcDcLcDistribution":

Kolmogorov distance of mixed discrete and absolutely continuous univariate distributions. It is computed using a union of the discrete part, a (pseudo-)random and a deterministic grid in combination with the support of e1.
