`z` |
n by 1 vector |

Used as selector statistics in adaptive schemes. Both Q1 and Q2 are ratios. For Q1, the numerator is upper 5% mean minus the middle 50% mean, while the denominator is difference between the middle 5% mean and the lower 5% mean. For Q2, the numerator is upper 5% mean minus the lower 5% mean, while the denominator is difference between the upper 50% mean and the lower 50% mean. These statistics are not robust.
