Performs the nonparametric squared ranks test on quality of variance for two samples. Based on Conover (1981), 'Practical Nonparametric Statistics', pp. 239-248.
Uses normal approximation for for m >10 (MATLAB fxn norminv or table if norminv unavailable). Uses normal approximation if ties exist. Uses tabulated critical values from Conover if small samples sizes and no ties.
