BCIntervalSpearmanMultivariate(
  mfD,
  ordering = "MEI",
  bootstrap_iterations = 1000,
  alpha = 0.05,
  verbose = FALSE
)

Arguments

mfD

is the multivariate functional sample in form of mfData object.

ordering

is either MEI (default) or MHI, and indicates the ordering relation to be used during in the Spearman's coefficient computation.

bootstrap_iterations

is the number of bootstrap iterations to use in order to estimate the confidence intervals (default is 1000).

alpha

controls the coverage probability (1-alpha).

verbose

whether to log information on the progression of bootstrap iterations.

Details

The function takes a multivariate functional dataset and computes a matrix of bootstrap confidence intervals for its Spearman correlation coefficients.

Value

The function returns a list of two elements, lower and upper, representing the matrices of lower and upper ends of the bootstrap confidence intervals for each pair of components. The elements on the main diagonal are set to 1.
