public class GTest extends Object
This is known in statistical genetics as the McDonaldKreitman test. The implementation handles both known and unknown distributions.
Two samples tests can be used when the distribution is unknown a priori but provided by one sample, or when the hypothesis under test is that the two samples come from the same underlying distribution.

Computes a G (LogLikelihood Ratio) two sample test statistic for
independence comparing frequency counts in
observed1
and observed2
. The sums of frequency
counts in the two samples are not required to be the same. The formula
used to compute the test statistic is
2 * totalSum * [H(rowSums) + H(colSums)  H(k)]
where H
is the
Shannon Entropy of the random variable formed by viewing the elements
of the argument array as incidence counts;
k
is a matrix with rows [observed1, observed2]
;
rowSums, colSums
are the row/col sums of k
;
and totalSum
is the overall sum of all entries in k
.
This statistic can be used to perform a G test evaluating the null hypothesis that both observed counts are independent
Preconditions:
observed1
and observed2
must have
the same length and their common length must be at least 2. If any of the preconditions are not met, a

.
Given two events A and B, let k11 be the number of times both events occur, k12 the incidence of B without A, k21 the count of A without B, and k22 the number of times neither A nor B occurs. What is returned by this method is
(sgn) sqrt(gValueDataSetsComparison({k11, k12}, {k21, k22})
where sgn
is 1 if k11 / (k11 + k12) < k21 / (k21 + k22))
;
1 otherwise.
Signed root LLR has two advantages over the basic LLR: a) it is positive where k11 is bigger than expected, negative where it is lower b) if there is no difference it is asymptotically normally distributed. This allows one to talk about "number of standard deviations" which is a more common frame of reference than the chi^2 distribution.

Returns the observed significance level, or

Performs a GTest (LogLikelihood Ratio Test) comparing two binned
data sets. The test evaluates the null hypothesis that the two lists
of observed counts conform to the same frequency distribution, with
significance level alpha
. Returns true iff the null
hypothesis can be rejected with 100 * (1  alpha) percent confidence.
