The adjustments of the p-value like Bonferroni, Holm, and Sidank's
adjustment are general and can also be used after non-parametric tests.
The adjustments are (n = number of tests, p = p-value, p' = adjusted

bonferroni (Bonferroni's method)

     p' = min(1, np)

holm (Holm's method)

     p' = min(1,n(p)*p), 
     where n(p) is the number of p-values smaller than p

sidak (Sidak's method)

     p' = 1 - (1-p)^n
