# Tukey

##### The Studentized Range Distribution

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`

.

- Keywords
- distribution

##### 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, \(P[X > x]\).

##### Details

If \(n_g =\)`nranges`

is greater than one, \(R\) is
the *maximum* of \(n_g\) groups of `nmeans`

observations each.

##### 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.

##### Note

A Legendre 16-point formula is used for the integral of `ptukey`

.
The computations are relatively expensive, especially for
`qtukey`

which uses a simple secant method for finding the
inverse of `ptukey`

.
`qtukey`

will be accurate to the 4th decimal place.

`library(stats)`

```
# 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)))
# }
