DetailsDetails

  • HoeffdingD[v1,v2] gives Hoeffding's dependence measure between v1 and v2.
  • Hoeffding's is a measure of dependence based on the relative order of elements in the two lists.
  • Hoeffding's between v1 and v2 is given by 30 (-2 (n-2) R+(n-3) (n-2) S+Q)/TemplateBox[{{n, -, 4}, 5}, Pochhammer], where is the number of observations in v1, , , , for , is the rank of v1i, is the rank of v2i, and is equal to Boole[a<b].
  • The arguments v1 and v2 can be any realvalued vectors of equal length greater than 5.
  • For a matrix m with columns, HoeffdingD[m] is a × matrix of the dependence measures between columns of m.
  • For an × matrix m1 and an × matrix m2, HoeffdingD[m1,m2] is a × matrix of the dependence measures between columns of m1 and columns of m2.
  • HoeffdingD[dist,i,j] is given by 30 Expectation[(F[x,y]-G[x]H[y])^2,{x,y}disti,j], where F[x,y], G[x], and H[y] are the CDFs of the ^(th), ^(th), and ^(th) marginals of dist respectively.
  • HoeffdingD[dist] gives a matrix where the ^(th) entry is given by HoeffdingD[dist,i,j].
