Abstract:

A distribution-free measure of dependence between two random variables is defined and shown to be a generalization of the quadrant measure of association. This new measure is presented as a U-statistic and its asymptotic efficiency relative to the quadrant measure is given. This measure can be used for locating edges in computer images. Author
