Title Computing P-Values of the K-S Test for (Dis)Continuous Null Distribution

Fast calculation of p-values for one-sided Kolmogorov-Smirnov type statistics.

We present a method for computing exact p-values for a large family of one-sided continuous goodness-of-fit statistics. This includes the higher criticism statistic, one-sided weighted

Statistical methods using hydrodynamic simulations of stellar atmospheres for detecting exoplanets in radial velocity data

TLDR
This work investigates the possibility of using hydrodynamic simulations of the stellar convection in the detection process to control exoplanet detection claims.

Intermediate efficiency of some weighted goodness-of-fit statistics

This paper introduces and investigates powerful omnibus test for uniformity and compares it with some classical and recent solutions. All statistics under consideration are weighted functionals of

On the exact Berk-Jones statistics and their p-value calculation

Continuous goodness-of-fit testing is a classical problem in statistics. Despite having low power for detecting deviations at the tail of a distribution, the most popular test is based on the

Exceedance control of the false discovery proportion via high precision inversion method of Berk Jones statistics

TLDR
A novel powerful approach for exceedance control is presented based on using a directional Berk-Jones goodness-of-fit statistic and employs a high-precision implementation procedure to accurately compute confidence envelopes for FDP.

Application of Equal Local Levels to Improve Q-Q Plot Testing Bands with R Package qqconf

Calculation of noncrossing probabilities for Poisson processes and its corollaries

The paper describes a new numerical method for the calculation of noncrossing probabilities for arbitrary boundaries by a Poisson process. We find the method to be simple in implementation, quick and

Let w(t), 0 ≦ t ≦ ∞, be a Brownian motion process, i.e., a zero-mean separable normal process with Pr{w(0) = 0} = 1, E{w(t 1)w(t 2)}= min (t 1, t 2), and let a, b denote the boundaries defined by y =

Asymptotic Theory of Certain "Goodness of Fit" Criteria Based on Stochastic Processes

The statistical problem treated is that of testing the hypothesis that $n$ independent, identically distributed random variables have a specified continuous distribution function F(x). If F_n(x) is

Confidence regions and tests for a change-point in a sequence of exponential family random variables

SUMMARY Maximum likelihood methods are used to test for a change in a sequence of independent exponential family random variables, with particular emphasis on the exponential distribution. The exact
