'''runstest
formulas for mean and var of runs taken from SAS manual NPAR tests, also idea
for runstest_1samp and runstest_2samp
Description in NIST handbook and dataplot does not explain their expected
values, or variance
Note:
There are (at least) two definitions of runs used in literature. The classical
definition which is also used here, is that runs are sequences of identical
observations separated by observations with different realizations.
The second definition allows for overlapping runs, or runs where counting a
run is also started after a run of a fixed length of the same kind.

Parameters
----------

Notes
-----
This was written as a more general class for runs. This has some redundant
calculations when only the runs_test is used.
TODO: make it lazy
The runs test could be generalized to more than 1d if there is a use case
for it.
This should be extended once I figure out what the distribution of runs
of any length k is.
The exact distribution for the runs test is also available but not yet
verified.

Notes

Wald-Wolfowitz runs test.
If there are ties, then then the test statistic and p-value that is
reported, is based on the higher p-value between sorting all tied
observations of the same group
This test is intended for continuous distributions
SAS has treatment for ties, but not clear, and sounds more complicated
(minimum and maximum possible runs prevent use of argsort)
(maybe it's not so difficult, idea: add small positive noise to first
one, run test, then to the other, run test, take max(?) p-value - DONE
This gives not the minimum and maximum of the number of runs, but should
be close. Not true, this is close to minimum but far away from maximum.
maximum number of runs would use alternating groups in the ties.)
Maybe adding random noise would be the better approach.
SAS has exact distribution for sample size <=30, does not look standard
but should be easy to add.
currently two-sided test only
This has not been verified against a reference implementation. In a short
Monte Carlo simulation where both samples are normally distribute, the test
seems to be correctly sized for larger number of observations (30 or
larger), but conservative (i.e. reject less often than nominal) with a
sample size of 10 in each group.

Parameters
----------
x, y : array_like
two paired data samples. If y is None, then x can be a 2 by 2
contingency table. x and y can have more than one dimension, then
the results are calculated under the assumption that axis zero
contains the observation for the samples.
exact : bool
If exact is true, then the binomial distribution will be used.
If exact is false, then the chisquare distribution will be used, which
is the approximation to the distribution of the test statistic for
large sample sizes.
correction : bool
If true, then a continuity correction is used for the chisquare
distribution (if exact is false.)
Returns
-------
stat : float or int, array
The test statistic is the chisquare statistic if exact is false. If the
exact binomial distribution is used, then this contains the min(n1, n2),
where n1, n2 are cases that are zero in one sample but one in the other
sample.
pvalue : float or array
p-value of the null hypothesis of equal effects.
Notes
-----
This is a special case of Cochran's Q test. The results when the chisquare
distribution is used are identical, except for continuity correction.
