A new set of tools for goodness-of-fit validation

Two new tools to assess the validity of statistical distributions are introduced based on components derived from a new statistical quantity, the comparison curve, and practical examples show how to use these tools to derive principled information about where the model departs from the data.

On the Asymptotic L1-PC of Elliptical Distributions

It is shown for the first time that, for centered elliptical distributions, as the number of samples increases, the L1-PC tends to the eigenvector of the covariance matrix, just like the standard PC.

A Cramér–Wold theorem for elliptical distributions



Goodness-of-fit tests for the inverse Gaussian and related distributions

In this paper, tests of goodness-of-fit for the inverse Gaussian distribution are developed. The distribution involves a shape parameter and, because of this, some test approaches lead to

Goodness-of-fit tests for multivariate Laplace distributions

Tree based diagnostic procedures following a smooth test of goodness-of-fit

A statistical procedure, to be applied after a goodness-of-fit test has rejected a null model, that provides diagnostic information to help the user decide on a better model and simulations show that the procedure can succeed in providing useful diagnostic information.

An empirical goodness-of-fit test for multivariate distributions

An empirical test is presented as a tool for assessing whether a specified multivariate probability model is suitable to describe the underlying distribution of a set of observations. This test is

A comparative study of goodness-of-fit tests for multivariate normality

A Monte Carlo power study of 10 multivariate normality goodness-of-fit tests is presented. First, multivariate goodness-of-fit methods and non-normal alternatives are classified according to their

Do components of smooth tests of fit have diagnostic properties?

Smooth goodness of fit tests were introduced by Neyman (1937). They can be regarded as a compromise between globally consistent (“omnibus”) tests of fit and procedures having high power in the

Data-Driven Version of Neyman's Smooth Test of Fit

Abstract Neyman's smooth test for testing uniformity is a recognized goodness-of-fit procedure. As stated by LaRiccia, the test can be viewed as a compromise between omnibus test procedures, with

Diagnostic smooth tests of fit

Abstract. Smooth tests are frequently used for testing the goodness of fit of a parametric family of distributions. One reason for the popularity of the smooth tests are the diagnostic properties

A class of invariant consistent tests for multivariate normality

Let be independent identically distributed random vectors in Rd d ≥ 1 , with sample mean [Xbar] n and sample covariance matrix S n . We present a class of practicable afflne-invariant tests for the

Data-Driven Smooth Tests When the Hypothesis is Composite

In recent years several authors have recommended smooth tests for testing goodness of fit. However, the number of components in the smooth test statistic should be chosen well; otherwise,
