Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note References See Also Examples
Nonparametric test for changepoint detection particularly sensitive to changes in Spearman's rho in multivariate time series. The observations can be serially independent or dependent (strongly mixing). Approximate pvalues for the test statistic are obtained by means of a multiplier approach or by estimating the asymptotic null distribution. Details can be found in first reference.

strictly positive integer specifying the value of the
bandwidth parameter determining the serial dependence when
generating dependent multiplier sequences using the 'moving average
approach'; see Section 5 of the second reference. The value 1
will create i.i.d. multiplier
sequences suitable for serially independent observations. If set to

When method == "mult"
, the approximate pvalue is computed as
(0.5 + sum(S[i] >= S, i=1, .., N)) / (N+1),
where S and S[i] denote the test statistic and a multiplier replication, respectively. This ensures that the approximate pvalue is a number strictly between 0 and 1, which is sometimes necessary for further treatments.
When method == "asym.var"
, the approximate pvalue is computed
from the estimated asymptotic null distribution, which involves the
Kolmogorov distribution. The latter is dealt with reusing code from
the ks.test()
function; credit to RCore.
