Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-1038) Add methods to find confidence intervals for the mean of a binomial distribution
Date Tue, 15 Oct 2013 11:00:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-1038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13795064#comment-13795064
] 

Thorsten Schäfer commented on MATH-1038:
----------------------------------------

1. I was thinking that one might want something like "how many numbers of success can I expect
in at least 95% cases based on a binomial sample", which would be an interval of integers
instead of doubles. However, currently its just a "stupid" type structure doing nothing else
but wrapping two values. Feel free to get rid of the generic numbers.
3. Yes, its a number between 0 and 1; 0.95 is the 95% confidence interval - or 5% significance
level
