SampleKuiperTest Method

Tests whether the sample is compatible with the given distribution.

Namespace:  Meta.Numerics.Statistics
Assembly:  Meta.Numerics (in Meta.Numerics.dll) Version: 4.1.4
public TestResult KuiperTest(
	ContinuousDistribution distribution


Type: Meta.Numerics.Statistics.DistributionsContinuousDistribution
The test distribution.

Return Value

Type: TestResult
The test result. The test statistic is the V statistic and the chance to obtain such a large value of V under the assumption that the sample is drawn from the given distribution.
ArgumentNullExceptiondistribution is .
InsufficientDataExceptionThere is no data in the sample.

Like the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test ((KolmogorovSmirnovTest(ContinuousDistribution), Kuiper's test compares the EDF of the sample to the CDF of the given distribution.

For small sample sizes, we compute the null distribution of V exactly. For large sample sizes, we use an accurate asymptotic approximation. Therefore it is safe to use this method for all sample sizes.
