Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-160) Chi-Square Test for Comparing two binned Data Sets
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2007 13:36:59 GMT

Luc Maisonobe commented on MATH-160:
------------------------------------

If we create a new interface (say TwoSamplesChiSquareTest), we need to add a createTwoSamplesChiSquareTest
method in TestFactory, this would also be an incompatible API change (regardless of the fact
TwoSamplesChiSquareTest extends or not ChiSquareTest).

I don't see how to solve this problem in an API compatible way.

> Current Chi-Square test implementation only supports standard Chi-Square testing with
respect to known distribution. We needed testing for comparison of two sample data sets where
the distribution can be unknown. For this case the Chi-Square test has to be computed in a
different way so that both error contributions (one for each sample data set) are taken into
account. See Press et. al, Numerical Recipes, Second Edition, formula 14.3.2.
