  • Results for the reduced version of the data of Wang and Hey (2010).

  • (i) The usual Embedded Image distribution with the appropriate number of degrees of freedom was used as the null distribution.

  • (ii) The null distribution used is a scaled and shifted Embedded Image distribution (Jesus and Chandler 2011, equation 3.6).
