Using the notation of Chow *et al.*, \(\sigma^2_{BR}\) and \(\sigma^2_{BT}\) are the inter-subject variance for treatments \(R\) and \(T\) respectively. This calculator performs power and sample size calculatios for the two-sided hypothesis:
\[
H_0: \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} = 1 \text{ versus } H_a: \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \ne 1
\]

or the one-sided hypthesis:

\[ H_0: \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \ge \delta \text{ versus } H_a: \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \lt \delta \]or the hypothesis of similarity:

\[ H_0: \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \ge \delta \text{ or } \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \le \frac{1}{\delta} \text{ versus } H_a: \frac{1}{\delta} \lt \frac{\sigma^2_{BT}}{\sigma^2_{BR}} \lt \delta \]where \(\delta\) is the similarity limit using a parallel design with replicates. The model used to test this hypothesis is explained in more depth here.

To input multiple values, seperate them by a comma.
