Package stats
contains a set of classical statistical inference and
hypothesis testing procedures.
All these functions return an inference_result
Maxima object which contains
the necessary results for population inferences and decision making.
Global variable stats_numer
controls whether results are given in
floating point or symbolic and rational format; its default value is true
and results are returned in floating point format.
Package descriptive
contains some utilities to manipulate data structures
(lists and matrices); for example, to extract subsamples. It also contains some
examples on how to use package numericalio
to read data from plain text
files. See descriptive
and numericalio
for more details.
Package stats
loads packages descriptive
, distrib
and
inference_result
.

Constructs an inference_result
object of the type returned by the
stats functions. Argument title is a
string with the name of the procedure; values is a list with
elements of the form symbol = value
and numbers is a list
with positive integer numbers ranging from one to length(values)
,
indicating which values will be shown by default.
Example:
This is a simple example showing results concerning a rectangle. The title of
this object is the string "Rectangle"
, it stores five results, named
'base
, 'height
, 'diagonal
, 'area
,
and 'perimeter
, but only the first, second, fifth, and fourth
will be displayed. The 'diagonal
is stored in this object, but it is
not displayed; to access its value, make use of function take_inference
.
(%i1) load(inference_result)$ (%i2) b: 3$ h: 2$ (%i3) inference_result("Rectangle", ['base=b, 'height=h, 'diagonal=sqrt(b^2+h^2), 'area=b*h, 'perimeter=2*(b+h)], [1,2,5,4] ); | Rectangle | | base = 3 | (%o3) | height = 2 | | perimeter = 10 | | area = 6 (%i4) take_inference('diagonal,%); (%o4) sqrt(13)
See also take_inference
.
Returns true
or false
, depending on whether obj is an
inference_result
object or not.
Returns a list with the names of the items stored in obj, which must
be an inference_result
object.
Example:
The inference_result
object stores two values, named 'pi
and 'e
,
but only the second is displayed. The items_inference
function returns the names
of all items, no matter they are displayed or not.
(%i1) load(inference_result)$ (%i2) inference_result("Hi", ['pi=%pi,'e=%e],[2]); | Hi (%o2) | | e = %e (%i3) items_inference(%); (%o3) [pi, e]
Returns the n-th value stored in obj if n is a positive integer,
or the item named name if this is the name of an item. If the first
argument is a list of numbers and/or symbols, function take_inference
returns
a list with the corresponding results.
Example:
Given an inference_result
object, function take_inference
is
called in order to extract some information stored in it.
(%i1) load(inference_result)$ (%i2) b: 3$ h: 2$ (%i3) sol: inference_result("Rectangle", ['base=b, 'height=h, 'diagonal=sqrt(b^2+h^2), 'area=b*h, 'perimeter=2*(b+h)], [1,2,5,4] ); | Rectangle | | base = 3 | (%o3) | height = 2 | | perimeter = 10 | | area = 6 (%i4) take_inference('base,sol); (%o4) 3 (%i5) take_inference(5,sol); (%o5) 10 (%i6) take_inference([1,'diagonal],sol); (%o6) [3, sqrt(13)] (%i7) take_inference(items_inference(sol),sol); (%o7) [3, 2, sqrt(13), 6, 10]

is true
, inference statistical functions
return their results in floating point numbers. If it is false
,
results are given in symbolic and rational format.
This is the mean t-test. Argument x is a list or a column matrix
containing a one dimensional sample. It also performs an asymptotic test
based on the Central Limit Theorem if option 'asymptotic
is
true
.
Options:
'mean
, default 0
, is the mean value to be checked.
'alternative
, default 'twosided
, is the alternative hypothesis;
valid values are: 'twosided
, 'greater
and 'less
.
'dev
, default 'unknown
, this is the value of the standard deviation when it is
known; valid values are: 'unknown
or a positive expression.
'conflevel
, default 95/100
, confidence level for the confidence interval; it must
be an expression which takes a value in (0,1).
'asymptotic
, default false
, indicates whether it performs an exact t-test or
an asymptotic one based on the Central Limit Theorem;
valid values are true
and false
.

favor of the alternative H_1. Note that, as indicated by the Method
component,
this procedure should be applied to large samples.

or a positive expression.

, this is the value of the standard deviation
of the x2 sample when it is known; valid values are: 'unknown
or a positive expression.
'varequal

Shapiro-Wilk test for normality. Argument x is a list of numbers, and sample
size must be greater than 2 and less or equal than 5000, otherwise, function
test_normality
signals an error message.

The output of function test_normality
is an inference_result
Maxima object
with the following results:
'statistic
: value of the W statistic.
'p_value
: p-value under normal assumption.
Examples:
Checks for the normality of a population, based on a sample of size 9.

Simple linear regression, y_i=a+b x_i+e_i, where e_i are N(0,sigma) independent random variables. Argument x must be a two column matrix or a list of pairs.
Options:
'conflevel
, default 95/100
, confidence level for the confidence interval; it must
be an expression which takes a value in (0,1).
'regressor
, default 'x
, name of the independent variable.
The output of function simple_linear_regression
is an inference_result
Maxima object
with the following results:
'model
: the fitted equation. Useful to make new predictions. See examples bellow.
'means
: bivariate mean.
'variances
: variances of both variables.
'correlation
: correlation coefficient.
'adc
: adjusted determination coefficient.
'a_estimation
: estimation of parameter a.
'a_conf_int
: confidence interval of parameter a.
'b_estimation
: estimation of parameter b.
'b_conf_int
: confidence interval of parameter b.
'hypotheses
: null and alternative hypotheses about parameter b.
'statistic
: value of the sample statistic used for testing the null hypothesis.
'distribution
: distribution of the sample statistic, together with its parameter.
'p_value
: p-value of the test about b.
'v_estimation
: unbiased variance estimation, or residual variance.
'v_conf_int
: variance confidence interval.
'cond_mean_conf_int
: confidence interval for the conditioned mean. See examples bellow.
'new_pred_conf_int
: confidence interval for a new prediction. See examples bellow.
'residuals
: list of pairs (prediction, residual), ordered with respect to predictions.
This is useful for goodness of fit analysis. See examples bellow.
Only items 1, 4, 14, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 above, in this order, are shown by default. The rest remain
hidden until the user makes use of functions items_inference
and take_inference
.
Example:
Fitting a linear model to a bivariate sample. Input %i4
plots
the sample together with the regression line; input %i5
computes y
given x=113
; the means and the
confidence interval for a new prediction when x=113
are also calculated.
