Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Performs the energy test of univariate normality for the composite hypothesis Case 4, estimated parameters.

Usage

1
2
normal.test(x, method=c("mc","limit"), R)
normal.e(x)

Arguments

x

univariate data vector

method

method for p-value

R

number of replications if Monte Carlo method

Details

If method="mc" this test function applies the parametric bootstrap method implemented in mvnorm.test.

If method="limit", the p-value of the test is computed from the asymptotic distribution of the test statistic under the null hypothesis. The asymptotic distribution is a quadratic form of centered Gaussian random variables, which has the form

∑_{k=1}^∞ λ_k Z_k^2,

where λ_k are positive constants (eigenvalues) and Z_k are iid standard normal variables. Eigenvalues are pre-computed and stored internally. A p-value is computed using Imhof's method as implemented in the CompQuadForm package.

Note that the "limit" method is intended for moderately large samples because it applies the asymptotic distribution.

The energy test of normality was proposed and implemented by Szekely and Rizzo (2005). See mvnorm.test for more details.

Value

normal.e returns the energy goodness-of-fit statistic for a univariate sample.

normal.test returns a list with class htest containing

statistic
