The question is with reference to this paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1802.04888.pdf

In the real life example on page 17-18, it is advised that the false positive risk is calculated using online calculator at http://fpr-calc.ucl.ac.uk/

How can false positive risk be calculated manually for this example? What exact formulae can we use?

The arXiv paper has now been published, at https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/full/10.1098/rsos.171085 The equations are all given in the appendices. There is a simple explicit form for the p-less-than result, but the more relevant p-equals form is inconvenient by hand which is why I wrote the web calculator.
