## 1Purpose

g08cjf calculates the Anderson–Darling goodness-of-fit test statistic and its probability for the case of standard uniformly distributed data.

## 2Specification

Fortran Interface
 Subroutine g08cjf ( n, y, a2, p,
 Integer, Intent (In) :: n Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Inout) :: y(n) Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Out) :: a2, p Logical, Intent (In) :: issort
#include <nag.h>
 void g08cjf_ (const Integer *n, const logical *issort, double y[], double *a2, double *p, Integer *ifail)
The routine may be called by the names g08cjf or nagf_nonpar_gofstat_anddar_unif.

## 3Description

Calculates the Anderson–Darling test statistic ${A}^{2}$ (see g08chf) and its upper tail probability by using the approximation method of Marsaglia and Marsaglia (2004) for the case of uniformly distributed data.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{n}$Integer Input
On entry: $n$, the number of observations.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}>1$.
2: $\mathbf{issort}$Logical Input
On entry: set ${\mathbf{issort}}=\mathrm{.TRUE.}$ if the observations are sorted in ascending order; otherwise the routine will sort the observations.
3: $\mathbf{y}\left({\mathbf{n}}\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input/Output
On entry: ${y}_{\mathit{i}}$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,n$, the $n$ observations.
On exit: if ${\mathbf{issort}}=\mathrm{.FALSE.}$, the data sorted in ascending order; otherwise the array is unchanged.
Constraint: if ${\mathbf{issort}}=\mathrm{.TRUE.}$, the values must be sorted in ascending order. Each ${y}_{i}$ must lie in the interval $\left(0,1\right)$.
4: $\mathbf{a2}$Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: ${A}^{2}$, the Anderson–Darling test statistic.
5: $\mathbf{p}$Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: $p$, the upper tail probability for ${A}^{2}$.
6: $\mathbf{ifail}$Integer Input/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to $0$, $-1$ or $1$ to set behaviour on detection of an error; these values have no effect when no error is detected.
A value of $0$ causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of $-1$ means that an error message is printed while a value of $1$ means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value $-1$ or $1$ is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value $1$ is recommended. Otherwise, the value $0$ is recommended. When the value $-\mathbf{1}$ or $\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ${\mathbf{ifail}}=0$ or $-1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{ifail}}=1$
On entry, ${\mathbf{n}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}>1$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=3$
${\mathbf{issort}}=\mathrm{.TRUE.}$ and the data in y is not sorted in ascending order.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=9$
The data in y must lie in the interval $\left(0,1\right)$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=-99$

${\mathbf{ifail}}=-399$

## 7Accuracy

Probabilities greater than approximately $0.09$ are accurate to five decimal places; lower value probabilities are accurate to six decimal places.

## 8Parallelism and Performance

g08cjf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

None.
