covTkTl: Finite Sample Covariance between T_k and T_l Values

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

Description

This function computes the exact (i.e., finite sample) covariance between T_k and T_l values which is used in the computation of the exact variance of Cuzick and Edwards T_{comb} test, which is a linear combination of some T_k tests.

The logical argument nonzero.mat (default=TRUE) is for using the A matrix if FALSE or just the matrix of nonzero locations in the A matrix (if TRUE) in the computations.

See page 80 of (\insertCitecuzick:1990;textualnnspat) for more details.

Usage

1
covTkTl(dat, n1, k, l, nonzero.mat = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

dat

The data set in one or higher dimensions, each row corresponds to a data point.

n1

Number of cases

k

Integers specifying the number of NNs (of subjects i and m in a_{ij}(k) a_{mj}(l)).

l

Integers specifying the number of NNs (of subjects i and m in a_{ij}(k) a_{mj}(l)).

nonzero.mat

A logical argument (default is TRUE) to determine whether the A matrix or the matrix of nonzero locations of the A matrix will be used in the computation of N_s and N_t. If TRUE the nonzero location matrix is used, otherwise the A matrix itself is used.

...

are for further arguments, such as method and p, passed to the dist function.

Value

Returns the exact covariance between T_k and T_l values.
