performs a test with null hypothesis .


  • To use , you first need to load the Hypothesis Testing Package using Needs["HypothesisTesting`"].
  • gives a -value for the test that the ratio of the variances and of the populations from which and were sampled is significantly different from r.
  • uses the test statistic Variance[list1]/Variance[list2]/r.
  • is based on an F-ratio distribution with Length[list1]-1 and Length[list2]-1 degrees of freedom.
  • The following options can be given:
  • FullReportFalsewhether to include detailed information about a test
    SignificanceLevelNonesignificance level of the test
    TwoSidedFalsewhether to perform a two-sided test
  • With the option FullReport->True, also returns the ratio of sample variances, the test statistic, and the distribution used to generate the -value.
