highD2pop-package: Two-sample tests for equality of means in high dimension

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

This package provides functions for the tests from Gregory et al. (2015), Chen and Qin (2010), Srivastava and Kubokawa (2013), and Cai, Liu, and Xia (2014) for the equal means hypothesis in the high-dimensional, two-population setting. These are used to test

H_0: \boldsymbol{μ}_1 = \boldsymbol{μ}_2

H_1: \boldsymbol{μ}_1 \neq \boldsymbol{μ}_2

when the number of components in the mean vectors exceeds the sample size, that is in the large-p-small-n setting.

The functions GCT.test, ChenQin.test and SK.test, CLX.test.equalcov and CLX.test.unequalcov, accept n by p and m by p data matrices with sample data from the first and second populations and return test statistics and p-values for the null hypothesis of equal means. The build2popData function simulates high-dimensional data in the two-population setting with specified sample sizes, numbers of components, covariance structure, etc., and the functions GCT.sim, ChenQin.sim, SK.sim, and CLX.sim.Covtest return test statistic values and p-values for lists of simulated data sets generated by build2popData. The CLX.Covtest function tests for equality of covariance matrices between the two populations with the test proposed in Cai, Liu, and Xia (2013). The GCT.test.missing is a version of the generalized component test which accomodates missing values and returns overall and componentwise missingness summaries. The functions rdblepareto and rgammashift generate realizations from heavy-tailed and skewed distributions under which the relative performance of the four tests is of interest.
