storey_pi0_est: Storey-Taylor-Siegmund estimation of pi0 (finite sample...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

The Storey-Taylor-Siegmund procedure for estimating pi0 is applied to pValues. The formula is equivalent to that in Schweder and Spjotvoll (1982), page 497, except the additional '+1' in the nominator that introduces a conservative bias which is proven to be sufficiently large for FDR control in finite families of hypotheses if the estimation is used for adjusting the nominal level of a linear step-up test.

Usage

1
storey_pi0_est(pValues, lambda)

Arguments

pValues

The raw p-values for the marginal test problems

lambda

A tuning parameter in the interval (0, 1)

Value

A list containing:

pi0

A numeric number containing the estimated value of pi0

lambda

A numeric number containing the tuning parameter for the estimation
