Description

Distance correlation t-test of multivariate independence for high dimension.

Usage

dcorT.test(x, y)
dcorT(x, y)

Arguments

x

data or distances of first sample

y

data or distances of second sample

Details

dcorT.test performs a nonparametric t-test of multivariate independence in high dimension (dimension is close to or larger than sample size). As dimension goes to infinity, the asymptotic distribution of the test statistic is approximately Student t with n(n-3)/2-1 degrees of freedom and for n ≥q 10 the statistic is approximately distributed as standard normal.

The sample sizes (number of rows) of the two samples must agree, and samples must not contain missing values.

The t statistic (dcorT) is a transformation of a bias corrected version of distance correlation (see SR 2013 for details).

Large values (upper tail) of the dcorT statistic are significant.

Value

dcorT returns the dcor t statistic, and dcorT.test returns a list with class htest containing
