diptest.multi: Diptest for discriminant coordinate projection

Description

Diptest (Hartigan and Hartigan, 1985, see dip) for data projected in discriminant coordinate separating optimally two class means (see discrcoord) as suggested by Tantrum, Murua and Stuetzle (2003).

Usage

diptest.multi(xdata,class,pvalue="uniform",M=100)

Arguments

xdata

matrix. Potentially multidimensional dataset.

class

vector of integers giving class numbers for observations.

pvalue

"uniform" or "tantrum". Defines whether the p-value is computed from a uniform null model as suggested in Hartigan and Hartigan (1985, using dip.test) or as suggested in Tantrum et al. (2003, using dipp.tantrum).

M

integer. Number of artificial datasets generated in order to estimate the p-value if pvalue="tantrum".

Value

The resulting p-value.

  x <- cbind(runif(100),runif(100))
  partition <- 1+(x[,1]<0.5)
  d1 <- diptest.multi(x,partition)
