# Tukey: The Studentized Range Distribution

## Description

Functions of the distribution of the studentized range, $$R/s$$, where $$R$$ is the range of a standard normal sample and $$df \times s^2$$ is independently distributed as chi-squared with $$df$$ degrees of freedom, see pchisq.

## Usage

ptukey(q, nmeans, df, nranges = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qtukey(p, nmeans, df, nranges = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

## Arguments

q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

nmeans

sample size for range (same for each group).

df

degrees of freedom for $$s$$ (see below).

nranges

number of groups whose maximum range is considered.

log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are $$P[X \le x]$$, otherwise, $$P[X > x]$$.

## Value

ptukey gives the distribution function and qtukey its inverse, the quantile function.

The length of the result is the maximum of the lengths of the numerical arguments. The other numerical arguments are recycled to that length. Only the first elements of the logical arguments are used.

## Details

If $$n_g =$$nranges is greater than one, $$R$$ is the maximum of $$n_g$$ groups of nmeans observations each.

## Examples

Run this code
# NOT RUN {
if(interactive())
curve(ptukey(x, nm = 6, df = 5), from = -1, to = 8, n = 101)
(ptt <- ptukey(0:10, 2, df =  5))
(qtt <- qtukey(.95, 2, df =  2:11))
## The precision may be not much more than about 8 digits:
# }
# NOT RUN {
summary(abs(.95 - ptukey(qtt, 2, df = 2:11)))
# }
