Abstract:

Efficient algorithms are developed for inverting the probability generating functions of the distributions of rank test statistics. A method is given for deriving probability generating functions in a form suitable for inversion. Cases treated include one and two sample linear rank statistics, the general scores test for regression, and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test statistics. Author
