Abstract The standard tables used for the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test are valid when testing whether a set of observations are from a completely-specified continuous distribution. If one or more parameters must be estimated from the sample then the tables are no longer valid. A table is given in this note for use with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic for testing whether a set of observations is from a normal population when the mean and variance are not specified but must be estimated from the…

On the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test for the Exponential Distribution with Mean Unknown
Abstract The standard tables used for the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test are valid when testing whether a set of observations are from a completely specified continuous distribution. If one or more
On the KOLMOGOROV‐SMIRNOV Test for the POISSON Distribution with Unknown Mean
The standard tables for the KOLMOGOROV-SMIRNOV test are valid only in the case of testing whether a set of observations is from a completely specified cumulative distribution, F0(X), with all
On the Kuiper test for normality with mean and variance unknown
Summary If one wants to test the hypothesis as to whether a set of observations comes from a completely specified continuous distribution or not, one can use the Kuiper test. But if one or more
An Application of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test for Normality with Estimated Mean and Variance
TLDR
The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test might be useful in this regard though he cautioned that the distribution of the relevant statistic (D) was unknown when the mean and variance of the population were unknown and had to be estimated from the sample.
An empirical model for the Kolmogorov‐Smirnov statistic
Abstract An explicit formula for the Kolmogorov‐Smirnov statistic, when distribution parameters are obtained from the data, does not exist in the literature. Lilliefors(5) provided a table of the
A modified Kolmogorov-Smirnov test for the inverse gaussian density with unknown parameters
The Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) test is an empirical distribution function (EDF) based goodness-of-fit test that requires the underlying hypothesized density to be continuous and completely specified.
An exact Kolmogorov–Smirnov test for the Poisson distribution with unknown mean
We develop an exact Kolmogorov–Smirnov goodness-of-fit test for the Poisson distribution with an unknown mean. This test is conditional, with the test statistic being the maximum absolute difference
Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests when parameters are estimated with applications to tests of exponentiality and tests on spacings
The paper considers Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests of goodness of fit in the presence of unknown nuisance parameters. It is shown that for a wide class of cases the acceptance probability is the ratio of
Coefficients of the asymptotic distribution of the kolmogorov-smirnov statistic when parameters are estimated
If the hypothesized distribution function contains unknown parameters the distribution of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness-of-fit test statistic and that of the empirical process depend on the

Abstract The test is based on the maximum difference between an empirical and a hypothetical cumulative distribution. Percentage points are tabled, and a lower bound to the power function is charted.

The usual test that a sample comes from a distribution of given form is performed by counting the number of observations falling into specified cells and applying the χ2 test to these frequencies. In
