# Massart Inequality Plot Function

### Description

Creates a Massart inequality plot for testing the empirical distribution and distribution function based on an inequality due to Massart (1990).

### Usage

1 2 | ```
distIneqMassartPlot(densFn = "norm", param = NULL,
nSamp = 50, n = 100, ...)
``` |

### Arguments

`densFn` |
Character. The root name of the distribution to be tested. |

`n` |
Numeric. The size of the sample to be used. |

`nSamp` |
Numeric. The number of samples used to approximate the LHS probability of the inequality. |

`param` |
Numeric. A vector giving the parameter values for the
distribution specified by |

`...` |
Passes the parameters of the distribution other than
specified by |

### Details

Massart (1990) gave a version of the Dvoretsky-Kiefer-Wolfowitz inequality with the best possible constant:

*
P(sup_x|F_n(x)-F(x)|> t) <= 2exp(-2nt^2)*

where * F_n* is the empirical distribution function for
a sample of *n* independent and identically distributed random
variables with distribution function *F*. This inequality is true
for all distribution functions, for all *n* and *t*.

The red curve in the plot shows the LHS probabilities and the black curve gives the RHS bound. The red curve should lie below the black curve in order that the empirical distribution represents a sample from the theoretical distribution.

### Value

Returns `NULL`

invisibly.
