an array of sample observations

y

the other array of sample observations

Value

Kuiper test statistic and p-value

Note

The computation of the p-value takes references from Paltani(2004) which states that the functions (in the set of four formulas) never underestimates the false positive probability however it can be a bit high when the sample size in the range of 40 to 50 a factor of 1.5 is quoted at the 1e-7 level
