Description

Method for plotting the p-values of test results on RVG frequency tables.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'rvgt.htest'
plot(x, alpha = 0.001, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class "rvgt.htest" or a list of such objects.

alpha

significance level.

...

further graphical parameters.

Details

Plot common logarithm of p-values stored in an object of class "rvgt.htest" (i.e., p-values of tests on RVG frequency tables). The p-values are plotted against increasing sample size. The significance level alpha is marked by a red dashed line. This allows for visible inspection of test results.

Argument x must be an object of class "rvgt.htest" that contains information about the test and p-values. Such an object is created by rvgt.chisq or rvgt.Mtest.

Alternatively, when the method is called by its full name, plot.rvgt.htest, then the first argument x may also be a list of such objects. Then p-values for multiple experiments will be plotted in the same graph with different colors. Thus one can compare the power of different tests or the results for different generation methods.

## Create a frequency table for normal distribution and show histogram.
## Use a sample of size of 5 times 10^5 random variates.
table <- rvgt.ftable(n=1e5,rep=5, rdist=rnorm,qdist=qnorm, mean=1,sd=2)

## Perform a chi-square goodness-of-fit test and plot result
r1 <- rvgt.chisq(table)
plot(r1)

## Perform M-test
r2 <- rvgt.Mtest(table)
plot(r2)

## Create a plot that contains the results of both tests
plot.rvgt.htest(list(r1,r2))
