A package giving the formulas of an exact distribution of ith nearest neighbours and two associated tests for independence

Share:

Description

This package provides the formulas to calculate the probability of observing the ith nearest neighbour given the (i-1)th nearest neighbour. Additionally this formulas is used in independence testing and this package provides implementations for two tests of independence novelTest.chisq and novelTest.extreme.

This package also provides a mean to benchmark test for independence on many different type of functional dependences and a new type of non-functional dependence.
