Description

To test pairwise monotonic associations of vectors within one set m, run test_associations(m,m). Note that the values on the diagonal will not be necessarily significant if the vectors contain 0's, as it can be seen by the formula p_{11}^2 t_{11} + 2 * (p_{00} p_{11} - p_{01} p_{10}). The formula for the variance of the estimator proposed by Pimentel(2009) does not apply in case p_{11}, p_{00}, p_{01}, p_{10} attain the values 0 or 1. In these cases the R function cor.test is used. Note that while independence implies that the estimator is 0, the estimator being 0 does not imply that the vectors are independent.

Usage

2
test_associations(m1, m2, parallel = FALSE, n_cor = 1,
  estimator = "values", d1, d2, p11 = 0, p01 = 0, p10 = 0)

Arguments

m1, m2

matrices whose columns are used to estimate the p_{ij} parameters. If no estimation calculations are needed, default is NA. Both are necessary if cross-correlating pairwise the vectors from two datasets.

parallel

should the computations for combiing the matrices be done in parallel? Default is FALSE.

n_cor

number of cores to be used if the computation is run in parallel. Default is 1.

estimator

string indicating how the parameters p_{11}, p_{01}, p_{10}, p_{00} are to be estimated. The default is 'values', which indicates that they are estimated based on the entries of x and y. If estimates=='mean', each p_{ij} is estimated as the mean of all pairs of column vectors in m_1, and of m_2 if needed. If estimates=='own', the p_{ij}'s must be given as arguments.

d1, d2

sets of vectors used to estimate p_{ij} parameters. If just one set is needed set d_1=d_2.

p11

probability that a bivariate observation is of the type (m,n), where m,n>0

p01

probability that a bivariate observation is of the type (0,n), where n>0.

p10

probability that a bivariate observation is of the type (n,0), where n>0.

Details

Given two matrices m_1 and m_2, computes all pairwise correlations of each vector in m_1 with each vector in m_2. Thanks to the package foreach, computation can be done in parallel using the desired number of cores.

Value

matrix of p-values of association.
