get_pvalue_results

Context: plotting

Synopsis

Return the data calculated by the last plot_pvalue call.

Syntax

get_pvalue_results()

Description

The `get_pvalue_results` function returns the likelihood ratio test results computed by the `plot_pvalue` command, which compares fits of the null model to fits of the alternative model using faked data with Poisson noise. The likelihood ratio based on the observed data is returned, along with the p-value, used to reject or accept the null model.


Example

Return the results of the last pvalue analysis and display the results - first using the `format` method, which provides a summary of the data, and then a look at the individual fields in the returned object. The last call displays the contents of one of the fields ( `ppp` ).

>>> res = get_pvalue_results()
>>> print(res.format())
>>> print(res)
>>> print(res.ppp)

PARAMETERS

This function has no parameters

Return value

The return value from this function is:

plot -- If `plot_pvalue` or `get_pvalue_plot` have been called then the return value is a `sherpa.sim.simulate.LikelihoodRatioResults` instance, otherwise `None` is returned.

Notes

The fields of the returned ( `LikelihoodRatioResults` ) object are:

Item Definition
ratios The calculated likelihood ratio for each iteration.
stats The calculated fit statistics for each iteration, stored as the null model and then the alt model in a nsim by 2 array.
samples The parameter samples array for each simulation, stored in a nsim by npar array.
lr The likelihood ratio of the observed data for the null and alternate models.
ppp The p value of the observed data for the null and alternate models.
null The fit statistic of the null model on the observed data.
alt The fit statistic of the alternate model on the observed data.

Bugs

See the bugs pages on the Sherpa website for an up-to-date listing of known bugs.
