Test for conditional independence in a contingency table represented as an array.
1 2  ciTest_table(x, set = NULL, statistic = "dev", method = "chisq",
adjust.df = TRUE, slice.info = TRUE, L = 20, B = 200, ...)

x 
An array of counts with named dimnames. 
set 
A specification of the test to be made. The tests are of the form u
and v are independent condionally on S where u and v are variables and S
is a set of variables. See 'details' for details about specification of

statistic 
Possible choices of the test statistic are 
method 
Method of evaluating the test statistic. Possible choices are

adjust.df 
Logical. Should degrees of freedom be adjusted for sparsity? 
slice.info 
Logical. Should slice info be stored in the output? 
L 
Number of extreme cases as stop criterion if method is 
B 
Number (maximum) of simulations to make if method is 
... 
Additional arguments. 
set
can be 1) a vector or 2) a righthand sided formula in
which variables are separated by '+'. In either case, it is tested if the
first two variables in the set
are conditionally independent given
the remaining variables in set
. (Notice an abuse of the '+'
operator in the righthand sided formula: The order of the variables does
matter.)
If set
is NULL
then it is tested whether the first two
variables are conditionally independent given the remaining variables.
An object of class 'citest' (which is a list).

## lizard is has named dimnames
names( dimnames( lizard ))
## checked with
is.named.array( lizard )
## Testing for conditional independence:
# the following are all equivalent:
ciTest(lizard, set=~diam + height + species)
# ciTest(lizard, set=c("diam", "height", "species"))
# ciTest(lizard, set=1:3)
# ciTest(lizard)
# (The latter because the names in lizard are as given above.)
## Testing for marginal independence
ciTest(lizard, set=~diam + height)
ciTest(lizard, set=1:2)
## Getting slice information:
ciTest(lizard, set=c("diam", "height", "species"), slice.info=TRUE)$slice
## Do Monte Carlo test instead of usual likelihood ratio test. Different
# options:
# 1) Do B*10 simulations divided equally over each slice:
ciTest(lizard, set=c("diam", "height", "species"), method="mc", B=400)
# 2) Do at most B*10 simulations divided equally over each slice, but stop
# when at most L extreme values are found
ciTest(lizard, set=c("diam", "height", "species"), method="smc", B=400)
