21 May 2013 (Updated )

Summarizes ordered lists.

betaScores(r)
function p = betaScores(r)
%BETASCORES Compute Beta scores for rank vector
%   p = BETASCORES(r) 
% - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   
%   INPUTS:
%       r   vector of normalized rank values on interval [0,1]
% - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
%   OUTPUTS:
%       p   a vector of p-values that corresponds to the sorted input 
%           vector. The NaN-s are moved to the end.
