The function implements the Interval Testing Procedure for testing the center of symmetry of a functional population evaluated on a uniform grid. Data are represented by means of the B-spline expansion and the significance of each basis coefficient is tested with an interval-wise control of the Family Wise Error Rate. The default parameters of the basis expansion lead to the piece-wise interpolating function.

`data` |
Pointwise evaluations of the functional data set on a uniform grid. |

`mu` |
The center of symmetry under the null hypothesis: either a constant (in this case, a constant function is used) or a |

`order` |
Order of the B-spline basis expansion. The default is |

`nknots` |
Number of knots of the B-spline basis expansion. The default is |

`B` |
The number of iterations of the MC algorithm to evaluate the p-values of the permutation tests. The defualt is |

`ITP1bspline`

returns an object of `class`

"`ITP1`

".

An object of class "`ITP1`

" is a list containing at least the following components:

`basis` |
String vector indicating the basis used for the first phase of the algorithm. In this case equal to |

`test` |
String vector indicating the type of test performed. In this case equal to |

`mu` |
Center of symmetry under the null hypothesis (as entered by the user). |

`coeff` |
Matrix of dimensions |

`pval` |
Uncorrected p-values for each basis coefficient. |

`pval.matrix` |
Matrix of dimensions |

`corrected.pval` |
Corrected p-values for each basis coefficient. |

`labels` |
Labels indicating the population membership of each data (in this case always equal to |

`data.eval` |
Evaluation on a fine uniform grid of the functional data obtained through the basis expansion. |

`heatmap.matrix` |
Heatmap matrix of p-values (used only for plots). |
