Constructor Detail

GaussianConfidence.Statistic

public GaussianConfidence.Statistic(double z)
Creates a new instance of Statistic

Parameters:
z - Value that is used in the Inverse Gaussian CDF to compute probability. Usually just called "z-statistic"
Method Detail

getZ

public double getZ()
Setter for z

Returns:
Value that is used in the Inverse Gaussian CDF to compute probability. Usually just called "z-statistic"

setZ

protected void setZ(double z)
Getter for z

Parameters:
z - Value that is used in the Inverse Gaussian CDF to compute probability. Usually just called "z-statistic"

getTestStatistic

public double getTestStatistic()
Description copied from interface: ConfidenceStatistic
Gets the statistic from which we compute the null-hypothesis probability. In an ANOVA, this would be the "F" statistic. In a t-test, this would be the "t" value. And so forth.

Returns:
Confidence statistic used to compute the null-hypothesis probability.
