(John Rayner, John Best & Olivier Thas) For multifactor experimental designs in which the levels of at least one of the factors are ordered we demonstrate the use of components that provide a deep nonparametric scrutiny of the data. The components assess generalized correlations and the resulting tests include and extend the Page and umbrella tests. (Thomas Seusse, John Rayner & Olivier Thas) Smooth tests were developed to test for a finite mixture distribution using two smooth models. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. These tests are demonstrated by testing for a mixture of two normal distributions. Some sizes and powers are given, as is an example. |
