Hi Imph,

» […] which formula to choose to calculate the number of subjects among all the formulas published: Dilleti, Chow, Julious,...

Diletti (1981), which is exact based on Owen’s Q function. Julious is based on an approximation by the noncentral t-distribution and fine as well.

» For now I am using chow's formula, I would like to know if there is a plausible reference that supports its use.

Don’t. Chow’s is based on the shifted central t-distribution and the paper contains typos. See also this post.

I suggest to estimate sample sizes with functions of the [image]-package PowerTOST. All three methods are im­ple­ment­ed, where the exact one is the default.
Whilst in many cases sample sizes based on the shifted central t-distribution will be equal to the others, sometimes estimated sample sizes are larger than necessary. The background is shown in an article.
