Abstract:

The generalized multivariate median of H. Oja is used to define a multivariate notion of quantile, or rank, and to define a measure of scatter of multivariate linear models. The latter, when applied to the one- and two-sample bivariate location models, yields affine invariant analogs of the Wilcoxon rank-sum and signed-rank tests, and of the corresponding estimates.
