TATTER (Two-sAmple TesT EstimatoR) performs two-sample hypothesis test. The two-sample hypothesis test is concerned with whether distributions p(x) and q(x) are different on the basis of finite samples drawn from each of them. This ubiquitous problem appears in a legion of applications, ranging from data mining to data analysis and inference. This implementation can perform the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test (for one-dimensional data only), Kullback-Leibler divergence, and Maximum Mean Discrepancy (MMD) test. The module performs a bootstrap algorithm to estimate the null distribution and compute p-value.
