Let and denote the empirical cumulative distribution functions for the two samples, where and are the sizes of the first and second samples respectively.
prob_kolmogorov2computes the upper tail probability for the Kolmogorov–Smirnov two sample two-sided test statistic , where
The probability is computed exactly if and using a method given by Kim and Jenrich (1973). For the case where of the and the Smirnov approximation is used. For all other cases the Kolmogorov approximation is used. These two approximations are discussed in Kim and Jenrich (1973).
