On non-parametric and generalized tests for the two-sample problem with location and scale change alternatives.


Various tests have been proposed for the two-sample problem when the alternative is more general than a simple shift in location: non-parametric tests; O'Brien's generalized t and rank sum tests; and other tests related to the t. We show that the generalized tests are directly related to non-parametric tests proposed by Lepage. As a result, we obtain a… (More)
