Description

Derives the optimal lambda for a given alpha.

Usage

1
optimalLambda(alpha, n, p, k = 1, var.known = TRUE)

Arguments

alpha

The desired confidence coefficient.

n

The number of replications per population.

p

The number of populations considered. This must be present if min.loc is equal to 'zero'.

k

The number of populations selected.

var.known

A logical flag indicating if the variance of the observations is known exactly. It is TRUE by default.
