Thank you Sarah
The problem is that we do not have access to the manuals right now, but the reference helps a lot

Do you have access to the Stata base reference manuals?
Typically the manuals contain detailed information on the formulas used to
implement a command.  The manual entry for -sampsi- is no exception. It's in
the section titled "Methods and formulas" near the end of the entry.
Hope that helps.

Hello Statalist members,
I would like to know the exact formula beyond the sampsi command to
calculate the sample size of two groups using comparison of means :
sampsi     m1  m2,  sd1()  sd2()  power ()  alpha() 
the output gives me the sample size of the two groups, n1 and n2, but I
would need the exact mathematical formula
Thanks for any suggestion
Sara Borelli
