  • If any argument is nonnumeric, CritBinom generates an error.

  • If trials is not an integer, it is truncated.

  • If trials < 0, CritBinom generates an error.

  • If probability_s is < 0 or probability_s > 1, CritBinom generates an error.

  • If alpha < 0 or alpha > 1, CritBinom generates an error.
