Type: SystemDouble
The minimum detectable difference.
standardDeviation (Optional)
Type: SystemDouble
The difference standard deviation.
proportion (Optional)
Type: SystemDouble
The proportion of observations in the second group when compared to the first group. A proportion of 2:1 results in twice more samples in the second group than in the first. Default is 1.
power (Optional)
Type: SystemDouble
The desired power level. Default is 0.8.
alpha (Optional)
Type: SystemDouble
The desired significance level. Default is 0.05.
hypothesis (Optional)
Type: Accord.Statistics.TestingTwoSampleHypothesis
The alternative hypothesis (research hypothesis) to be tested.

Return Value

Type: TwoSampleZTestPowerAnalysis
The required number of samples.
