Applying the extended Fourier amplitude sensitivity Test algorithm to create the numeric sequences for each parameter (Saltelli et al. 1999).
Each sequence is random generated based on the random phase shift approach.
It is an extension based on the `fast99`

function in sensitivity package.

rfast99( params, n, M = 4, omega = NULL, q = NULL, q.arg = NULL, replicate = 5, conf = 0.95 )

params | an integer for the giving number of parameters, or a vector of character strings giving their names. |
---|---|

n | an integer for the sampling size. |

M | an integer specifying the interference parameter. The default is 4. |

omega | a vector giving the set of frequencies. |

q | a vector of quantile functions names corresponding to wanted parameters distributions. |

q.arg | a list of quantile functions parameters. |

replicate | an integer to define the number of replication. The default is 5. |

conf | the confidence level for replication confidence intervals. The default is 0.95. |

The returned parameter value will be stored in an array with c(model evaluation, replication, parameters).
