kolmogorov smirnov in r - cannot compute correct p-values with ties
I'm trying to use the kolmogorov smirnov test in in R to compare one distribution with another. I'm getting the following error: cannot compute correct p-values with ties
I think this is because the dataset that I am using has in the first instance around 2000 values, and the second, 50000 values. A number of these are inherently going to be replicates of another number in the series (i.e. "ties"). I'm just wondering if this has implcations for the p value I have? Is the p value valid?

Did you read the R documentation for the ks.test function?
You could test the sensitivity of the p-value empirically. Add small random perturbations to your data to generate new data sets that have more digits. See how much the p value changes.
