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

### 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.

.
The formula is given by `P_ceq,P_cge_ale`

and `Pc_givena`

.
The two tests of independence are `novelTest.chisq`

and `novelTest.extreme`
