Arguments

x

vector of nonnegative integers, the sample data

R

number of bootstrap replicates

Details

The mean distance test of Poissonity was proposed and implemented by Szekely and Rizzo (2004). The test is based on the result that the sequence of expected values E|X-j|, j=0,1,2,... characterizes the distribution of the random variable X. As an application of this characterization one can get an estimator \hat F(j) of the CDF. The test statistic (see poisson.m) is a Cramer-von Mises type of distance, with M-estimates replacing the usual EDF estimates of the CDF:

M_n = n sum [j>=0] (\hat F(j) - F(j; \hat λ))^2 f(j; \hat λ).

The test is implemented by parametric bootstrap with R replicates.

Value
