A homogeneity test for several samples
A test is proposed for nonparametric hypotheses on the homogeneity of several samples differing in volume. The statistics for the test are proposed as the maximum value of the modulus for the difference between the empirical distributions on pairwise comparison. Analytical relationships are derived for the critical values in testing hypotheses on the homogeneity of three, four, and five samples.
