Two Final Methods and Some Final Thoughts

  • Olivier Thas
Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


A seemingly completely different approach to arrive at two- or K-sample EDF test statistics is described in Section 12.1. This method is known as the contingency table approach, as proposed by Rayner and Best (2001). The sample space partition testsof Section 12.2 can be looked at as a combination of the contingency table approach and the tests of the EDF type. Although both type of tests are basically EDF tests, we have chosen to present them in a separate chapter, because the manner in which they are constructed deviates from what is seen in the previous chapters. This chapter, and the book, is concluded with Section 12.3 with some final thoughts.
