View source: R/weight_continuous_nwt.R

This is a Newton Raphson based algorithm to compute weight from the ranks probability for the continuous effect sizes.

1 | ```
weight_continuous_nwt(alpha, et, ranksProb, x0 = NULL)
``` |

`alpha` |
Numeric, significance level of the hypothesis test |

`et` |
Numeric, mean effect size of the test statistics |

`ranksProb` |
Numeric vector of ranks probability of the tests given the effect size |

`x0` |
Numeric, a initial value for the Newton-Raphson mehod. |

If one wants to test

*H_0: epsilon_i = 0 vs. H_a: ε_i > 0,*

then `et`

should be mean of the test effect sizes.
This is called hypothesis testing for the continuous effect sizes.

For the Newton-Raphson mehthod the initial value `x0`

is very important.
One may need to supply externally if the function shows error. Newton-Raphson
method may not work in some cases. In that situations, use `weight_continuous`

function, which is a general but slow approach to compute weights beased on the
grid search algorithm.

`w`

Numeric vector of weights of the tests for the continuous case

`lambda`

Numeric value of the LaGrange multiplier

`n`

Integer, number of iteration needed to obtain the initial value

`k`

Integer, number of iteration needed to obtain the optimal
value of `lambda`
