ageTests-class: Class '"ageTests"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Results of chi2-tests testing to which number of populations the ages calculated by the function calculateAges are the most lickely to come from. The test is the one described in the article Montel et al. (1996).

Objects from the Class

Object from this class are created by the function tests applied to an object of class ages when the option nbmax is not set to NULL but to an integer larger than nbmin.

Slots

nb.pop:

Object of class "vector" that contains the tested numbers of populations.

best.nb:

Object of class "numeric" that contains the most probable number of populations, which is the smallest number for which the chi2-test is accepted.

best.res:

Object of class "oneAgeTest" that contains the result of the test for best.nb populations.

Methods

print

signature(x = "ageTests"): displays a summary of the results of the test.

show

signature(object = "ageTests"): displays a summary of the results of the test.

summary

signature(object = "ageTests"): displays a summary of the results of the test.
