Confidence control for false discovery proportion
The aim of this project is to explore the property of false discovery rate (FDR): the expected percentage of true null hypotheses among all the rejected hypotheses. FDR is widely used in modern large hypothesis testing. A deeper understanding in the concept is very important to the correctness of these inference.
