The code performs original two tailed Mann-Kendall test. It tests the null hypothesis of trend absence in the vector V, against the alternative of trend.
The result of the test is returned in H = 1 indicates a rejection of the null hypothesis at the alpha significance level. H = 0 indicates a failure to reject the null hypothesis at the alpha significance level.
First of all thank you. I've made some minor change to your code as follow,to include tied groups in Calculating the variance:
after line 48:
% Determining the variance (tied group included)
It is working very well and is very convenient to use since it returns the result of the hypothesis test, not just the test statistic. But: the alternative of S = 0 --> Z = 0 is not accounted for if I'm right.
For future updates I would also wish for a default significance level (for convenience). And perhaps a mention in the help text that there should be no autocorrelation in residuals.
