We consider the problem of estimation and inference on the mixture parameter in the two-sample problem when sample data from the two distributions as well as from a third population consisting of a mixture of the two are used. Under a general nonparametric model, where the relationship between the two populations is unspecified, we develop a pairwise rank… CONTINUE READING
