Abstract:

For progressive censoring schemes pertaining to a general class of parametric as well as nonparametric testing situations, one encounters a partial sequence of linear combinations of functions of order statistics where the coefficients are themselves stochastic variables. Weak convergence of such a quantile process to an appropriate Gaussian function is studied here, and the same is incorporated in the formulation of suitable time - sequential tests based on these quantile processes.
