Dear HS,

❝ Oh, I took these boots on many years ago. And they got muddy almost immediatelly. I tried to get a numerical approximation of the cdf of the t-distribution which lead me to the gamma-function and headaches.

❝ Finally I ended up with numerical approximations.[1,2]

Let me highfive you for this. I did the same, in C, and it took me quite some time, only to find out later that C actually comes with a beautiful function called lgamma which does it and returns the logarithm. I wasted a good part of my youth reinventing the wheel it seems :angry:

❝ BTW, nitpicking Diletti’s Table 1[6] (power 70%, T/R=1, CV=7.5%) and nQuery 7 give n=4, whilst my R code, StudySize 2.0.1, and FARTSSIE 1.6 come up with n=6. Now what? Go with a democratic vote of 3:2 for 6?

Two solutions:
  1. Ask dlabes
  2. Get your power from a program that bases its evaluation on brute force rather than on numerical integration.
