chi2CMB: Chi-squared statistic for two 'CMBWindow's

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/Statistics.R

Description

This function returns the empirical chi-squared statistic for intensities observations from two CMBWindows of the specified CMBDataFrame. The functions employs the function chi2.empirical and uses histogram counts of intensities for computations.

Usage

1
chi2CMB(cmbdf, win1, win2, intensities = "I")

Arguments

cmbdf

A CMBDataFrame.

win1

A CMBWindow

win2

A CMBWindow

intensities

A CMBDataFrame column with measured values.

Value

Estimated Chi-squared statistic for observations in two CMBWindows. For small sample sizes and many zero counts Chi-squared statistic is inefficient.
