EV.Tcomb: Expected Value for Cuzick & Edwards T_{comb} Test Statistic

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function computes the expected value of Cuzick & Edwards T_{comb} test statistic in disease clustering, where T_{comb} is a linear combination of some T_k tests.

The argument, n_1, is the number of cases (denoted as n1 as an argument). The number of cases is denoted as n_1 to match the case-control class labeling, which is just the reverse of the labeling in \insertCitecuzick:1990;textualnnspat.

The argument klist is the vector of integers specifying the indices of the T_k values used in obtaining the T_{comb}.

The argument sig is the covariance matrix of the vector of T_k values used in Tcomb, and can be computed via the the covTcomb function.

See page 87 of (\insertCitecuzick:1990;textualnnspat) for more details.
