DistFunc_kFactor¶

DistFunc_kFactor(n, p, alpha)

Exact margin factor for bilateral covering interval of a Normal population.

Parameters
nint

The size of the population

pfloat

The probability level of the covering interval

alphafloat

The confidence level of the covering interval

Returns
kfloat

The margin factor

Notes

This method allows to compute the exact margin factor of a Normal population of size with unknown means and unknown common variance . It is equivalent to the pooled version with .

Examples

>>> import openturns as ot
>>> k = ot.DistFunc.kFactor(5, 0.95, 0.9)
