# Some notes on the location–scale Cucconi test

@article{Marozzi2009SomeNO, title={Some notes on the location–scale Cucconi test}, author={Marco Marozzi}, journal={Journal of Nonparametric Statistics}, year={2009}, volume={21}, pages={629 - 647} }

The best known and most used rank test for the location–scale problem is due to Lepage [Y. Lepage, A combination of Wilcoxon's and Ansari–Bradley's statistics, Biometrika 58 (1971), pp. 213–217.], but this paper is focused on the location–scale rank test of Cucconi [O. Cucconi, Un nuovo test non parametrico per il confronto tra due gruppi campionari, Giorn. Econom. XXVII (1968), pp. 225–248.], proposed earlier but not nearly as well-known. The test is of interest because, contrary to the other…
