Abstract:

A computer program has been developed for rapidly computing the non-centrality parameter in a statistical test of the chi-square distribution against a non-central chi-square alternative, when the number of degrees of freedom, the level of significance, and the power are all specified. The program produces results similar to those in previously published tables but operates with a marked saving in execution time. The program is well suited to implementation as part of a larger program, as part of a man-computer interactive system, or within a minicomputer. The report contains a program listing together with tables of computed values of the noncentrality.
