Tukey {stats}  R Documentation 
Functions of the distribution of the studentized range, R/s
,
where R
is the range of a standard normal sample and
df \times s^2
is independently distributed as
chisquared with df
degrees of freedom, see pchisq
.
ptukey(q, nmeans, df, nranges = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qtukey(p, nmeans, df, nranges = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
q 
vector of quantiles. 
p 
vector of probabilities. 
nmeans 
sample size for range (same for each group). 
df 
degrees of freedom for 
nranges 
number of groups whose maximum range is considered. 
log.p 
logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p). 
lower.tail 
logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are

If n_g =
nranges
is greater than one, R
is
the maximum of n_g
groups of nmeans
observations each.
ptukey
gives the distribution function and qtukey
its
inverse, the quantile function.
The length of the result is the maximum of the lengths of the numerical arguments. The other numerical arguments are recycled to that length. Only the first elements of the logical arguments are used.
A Legendre 16point formula is used for the integral of ptukey
.
The computations are relatively expensive, especially for
qtukey
which uses a simple secant method for finding the
inverse of ptukey
.
qtukey
will be accurate to the 4th decimal place.
qtukey
is in part adapted from Odeh and Evans (1974).
