EV.Tkinv: Expected Value of Cuzick and Edwards T_k^{inv} Test statistic

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

Description

This function computes the expected value of Cuzick and Edwards T_k^{inv} test statistic which is based on the sum of number of cases closer to each case than the k-th nearest control to the case.

The number of cases are denoted as n_1 (denoted as n1 as an argument) and number of controls as n_0 for both functions (denoted as n0 as an argument), to match the case-control class labeling, which is just the reverse of the labeling in \insertCitecuzick:1990;textualnnspat.

See the function ceTkinv for the details of the T_k^{inv} test.

See (\insertCitecuzick:1990;textualnnspat) and references therein.

Arguments
