Re: Twosamples difference: semiamplitude vs. sizes

____1. The total sum of squared deviations, ssd= ssdX + ssdY, does follow a Chi squared n2 df. (n=nX+nY) ERROR: It is true only when sigma=1: otherwise we must multiply the semiamplitude by sigma. This follows from : _____(n1)*s^s/variance = 1/(s^2)* sum (X_i  xhat)^2 follows a chisquared n1 df. Luis A. Afonso
