Computes the coefficient I_n and performs a nonparametric
E-test of independence. The test decision is obtained via
bootstrap, with R
replicates.
The sample sizes (number of rows) of the two samples must agree, and
samples must not contain missing values. The statistic
E = I^2 is a ratio of V-statistics based
on interpoint distances ||x_{i}-y_{j}||.
See the reference below for details.

Historically this is the first energy test of independence. The
distance covariance test dcov.test
, distance correlation
dcor
, and related methods are more recent (2007,2009).
The distance covariance test is faster and has different properties than
mvI.test
. Both methods are based on a population independence coefficient
that characterizes independence and both tests are statistically consistent.
