We apply a recently developed ‘Computational Approach Test’ (CAT), a variant of the parametric bootstrap method, to test the equality of means of several gamma distributions. All parameters are assumed to be unknown, and we consider two cases-(i) the shape parameters, though unknown, are assumed to be equal; and (ii) the shape parameters are all unknown and possibly unequal. The CAT, as applied to the above two cases, doesn’t require the knowledge of any sampling distribution, depends heavily… Expand
