Abstract:

Let X sub j j1,2,... be a sequence of independently distributed real valued random variables. A non-parametric test of the hypothesis that the X sub js are identically distributed against the alternative that the X sub js are stochastically increasing, is given. The asymptotic power of the test for certain regression alternatives is given, and its efficiency is compared with the most powerful test for the normal alternative. Author
