public class WilcoxonSignedRankTest extends Object
Constructor and Description 

WilcoxonSignedRankTest()
Create a test instance where NaN's are left in place and ties get the
average of applicable ranks.

WilcoxonSignedRankTest(NaNStrategy nanStrategy,
TiesStrategy tiesStrategy)
Create a test instance using the given strategies for NaN's and ties.

Modifier and Type  Method and Description 

double 
wilcoxonSignedRank(double[] x,
double[] y)
Computes the
Wilcoxon signed ranked statistic comparing means for two related
samples or repeated measurements on a single sample.

double 
wilcoxonSignedRankTest(double[] x,
double[] y,
boolean exactPValue)
Returns the observed significance level, or
pvalue, associated with a
Wilcoxon signed ranked statistic comparing mean for two related
samples or repeated measurements on a single sample.

This statistic can be used to perform a Wilcoxon signed ranked test evaluating the null hypothesis that the two related samples or repeated measurements on a single sample have equal mean.
Let X_{i} denote the i'th individual of the first sample and Y_{i} the related i'th individual in the second sample. Let Z_{i} = Y_{i}  X_{i}.
