kochar.exp.test: Kochar test for exponentiality In exptest: Tests for Exponentiality

Description

Performs Kochar test for the composite hypothesis of exponentiality, see e.g. Kochar (1985).

Usage

 1 kochar.exp.test(x, simulate.p.value=FALSE, nrepl=2000) 

Arguments

 x a numeric vector of data values.
 simulate.p.value a logical value indicating whether to compute p-values by Monte Carlo simulation. nrepl the number of replications in Monte Carlo simulation.

Details

The Kochar test for exponentiality is based on the following statistic:

T = √{\frac{108n}{17}}\frac{∑_{i=1}^n{J(i/(n+1))X_{(i)}}}{∑_{i=1}^n{X_i}},

where

J(u) = 2(1-u)[1-\log{(1-u)}] - 1.

The statistic T is asymptotically standard normal.

Value

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:

 statistic the value of the Kochar statistic. p.value  the p-value for the test. method the character string "Kochar test for exponentiality". data.name a character string giving the name(s) of the data.
