# Two-sample Fligner-Kileen test for homogeneous scales.

### Description

Returns the Fligner-Kileen test for homogeneous scales for two-samples. Also estimates of ratio of scales based on the logs of folded median-aligned samples and a corresponding confidence interval is computed. fk.test computes the value of the statistic based on squared-normal scores following the optimal (for normal errors) such test described in Section 2.10 of Hettmansperger and McKean (2011). Hence, it will differ from the core R routine fligner.test; see the discussion in Section 3.3 of Kloke and McKean (2014).
