Abstract : Functional inference recommends data analysis of a sample of n observations by functional and graphical representations of its probability models using various functions on O u 1, including the quantile function. This paper discusses: change PP plots and a continuous version of the sample quantile function which use the mid-distinct values probability integral transform; comparison density functions; comparison interpretation of probability integral transform; maximum spacings method of one sample parameter estimation....
