PROB_KUIPER

PROB_KUIPER

Name


      PROB_KUIPER

Purpose


      Return the significance of the Kuiper statistic

Explanation


      Returns the significance level of an observed value of the
      Kuiper statistic D for an effective number of data points
      N_eff. Called by KUIPERONE

Calling Sequence


      prob_kuiper, D, N_eff, probks

Input Parameters


      D - Kuiper statistic, floating scalar, always non-negative
      N_eff - Effective number of data points, scalar. For a 2 sided test
              this is given by (N1*N2)/(N1+N2) where N1 and N2 are the number
              of points in each data set.

Output Parameters


      probks - floating scalar between 0 and 1 giving the significance level of
              the Kuiper statistic. Small values of PROB suggest that the
              distribution being tested are not the same

Revision History


      Written W. Landsman August, 1992
      Corrected typo (termbv for termbf) H. Ebeling/W.Landsman March 1996
      Probably did not affect numeric result, but iteration went longer
      than necessary
      Converted to IDL V5.0 W. Landsman September 1997
