Description

Numerical estimation of the convergence rate of Rosenthal's fail-safe number Nr.

Usage

1
convergence.rate(k = seq( 10, 5000, by = 10), R = 1000, alpha = 0.05)

Arguments

k

A grid of number of studies to consider.

R

The number of repeats for each number of studies.

alpha

The significance level, set to 0.05 by default.

Details

This function replicates the Figures 6 and 5 in Fragkos, Tsagris and Frangos (2017).

Value

Two plots, the absolute relative error of Nr agains the number of studies and the logarithm of absolute relative error against the logarithm of the number of studies and the coefficients of the regression model of the second plot. The second coefficient is the numerically estimated convergence rate of Nr.
