Generalized Fluctuation Tests

Performs a generalized fluctuation test.

Keywords
htest
Usage
# S3 method for efp
sctest(x, alt.boundary = FALSE,
    functional = c("max", "range", "maxL2", "meanL2"), ...)
Arguments
x

an object of class "efp".

alt.boundary

logical. If set to TRUE alternative boundaries (instead of the standard linear boundaries) will be used (for CUSUM processes only).

functional

indicates which functional should be applied to the empirical fluctuation process.

...

currently not used.

Details

The critical values for the MOSUM tests and the ME test are just tabulated for confidence levels between 0.1 and 0.01, thus the p value approximations will be poor for other p values. Similarly the critical values for the maximum and mean squared Euclidean norm ("maxL2" and "meanL2") are tabulated for confidence levels between 0.2 and 0.005.

Value

An object of class "htest" containing:

statistic

the test statistic,

p.value

the corresponding p value,

method

a character string with the method used,

data.name

a character string with the data name.

Examples
# NOT RUN {
## Load dataset "nhtemp" with average yearly temperatures in New Haven
data("nhtemp")
## plot the data
plot(nhtemp)

## test the model null hypothesis that the average temperature remains
## constant over the years compute OLS-CUSUM fluctuation process
temp.cus <- efp(nhtemp ~ 1, type = "OLS-CUSUM")
## plot the process with alternative boundaries
plot(temp.cus, alpha = 0.01, alt.boundary = TRUE)
## and calculate the test statistic
sctest(temp.cus)

## compute moving estimates fluctuation process
temp.me <- efp(nhtemp ~ 1, type = "ME", h = 0.2)
## plot the process with functional = "max"
plot(temp.me)
## and perform the corresponding test
sctest(temp.me)
