A comparison of the discrete Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic and the Euclidean distance

Abstract

Goodness-of-fit tests gauge whether a given set of observations is consistent (up to expected random fluctuations) with arising as independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) draws from a user-specified probability distribution known as the “model.” The standard gauges involve the discrepancy between the model and the empirical distribution of the… (More)
