1 통계연구(2012), 제17권 제1호, A study on the biaspect procedure with location and scale parameters (Short Title: Biaspect procedure) HyoIl Park 1) Ju Sung Kim 2) Abstract In this research we propose a new nonparametric test based on the biaspect procedure. We consider the hypothesis which deals with the location and scale parameters simultaneously and propose a new test statistic by choosing a suitable combining function. Then we consider to obtain the values by applying the permutation principle. We compare the efficiency among the combining functions by obtaining empirical powers through a simulation study. Then we discuss some interesting results in our procedure as concluding remarks. Key words : Combining function, location parameter, permutation principle, scale parameter, twosample problem 1. Introduction In recent years, in order to improve the power of test, some nonparametric testing procedures have adopted the trend of multiple use of several nonparametric test statistics simultaneously. A wellknown procedure is the socalled versatile test(cf. Fleming et al., 1987) which combines several tests under the identical hypothesis with a suitable combining function and obtains and reports the overall values. Also Park(2011) considered the several versatile tests with a group of quantile tests. On the other hand one may consider reducing the scope of the null hypothesis by splitting the null hypothesis into subhypotheses with several aspects of the original null hypothesis and then intersecting them. Pesarin(2001) initiated this approach for nonparametric testing problems and named this the multiaspect test. In order to provide some ideas for this test procedure, we consider the following null hypothesis for the twosample problem 1) Professor, Department of Statistics, Chongju University, Chongju , Korea. 2) (Corresponding author) Professor, Department of Informational Statistics, Chungbuk National University, Chongju , Korea.
2 20 HyoIl Park Ju Sung Kim, (1.1) (1.1) where is the distribution function for the th population,. Then one may perform a test for (1.1) using a suitable nonparametric test for the twosample problem, which can be optimal for the location alternatives. Also we note that one may be interested in testing (1.1) for the scale parameter. The biaspect test implies that one would like to test (1.1) for the location and scale parameters simultaneously. For this we express a relation between and as follows: for any real numbers and and for all, (1.2) (1.2) where and are the location translation and scale parameters, respectively. In view of the model (1.2), we can rewrite (1.1) as. (1.3) (1.3) Then for each individual subhypothesis and, one should choose a reasonable nonparametric test procedure. Then by using a suitable combining function, one may obtain an overall value or critical value for any given significance level. Pesarin(2001) called this test procedure the biaspect test. This procedure has been developed and applied in the various situations(cf. Marozzi, 2004 and 2007 and Salmaso and Solari, 2005). Especially Brombin et al.(2011) considered applying this multiaspect tests to the case of biomedical data. For obtaining the critical value for any given significance level or value, one has to obtain the null distribution. For this purpose, the permutation principle can be applied(cf. Good, 2000), which is a resampling method. The permutation principle has been initiated by (1925) but only recently it has been used widely with the rapid development of the computer facility and its softwares because of the nature of resampling method. In this research, we introduce a nonparametric test procedure for (1.1) with a biaspect approach based upon (1.2) or (1.3) for the two sample case. In the next section, we construct a new test statistics through the values for the chosen test statistics with several combining functions. We consider using the Wilcoxon rank sum statistic for and the Mood statistic(1954) for. Then we obtain the overall values by applying the permutation principle. We compare

Finally we discuss some interesting features of the biaspect tests as concluding remarks. 2. Formulation of biaspect test Let and be two independent random samples from populations with distribution functions and. We assume that is unknown but continuous for each, satisfying the relation (1.2). Based on these data sets, we assume that we are interested in testing (1.1) but through testing (1.3). For this purpose, we consider applying the Wilcoxon rank sum test for and Mood test(1954) for, respectively. Let be the rank of, from the combined sample. Then the Wilcoxon rank sum statistic and Mood statistic can be written as and. Then in oder to obtain values for and for each subhypothesis, one has to obtain the null distributions. This can be done by applying the permutation principle(cf., 1925) for the small sample case. However for the large sample case, one has to obtain the limiting distributions using the large sample approximation theorem. It is wellknown that when suitably normalized, both and converge in distribution to standard normal random variables. By obtaining the values for and with any one from the two approaches, one may complete the test for (1.1) by choosing a suitable combining function to obtain an overall value. Several useful combining functions are well summarized and explained by Pesarin(2001). We now review them in the following. For this let be the value for for each,. (1) The omnibus combining function is based on the statistic. It is well known that if two partial test statistics are independent and continuous, then follows a distribution with 4 degrees of freedom under (1.1). (2) The combining function is based on the statistic, where is the inverse of the standard normal distribution function.
4 22 HyoIl Park Ju Sung Kim (3) The combining function is given by. Then by using a reasonably chosen combining function from the above reviewed ones, one has to obtain the null distribution to decide the final overall value. One can obtain the null distribution by applying the permutation principle. It is wellknown that the permutation principle yields the exact test when we consider all the permutational configurations for the given data. However the excessive burden of computations in this way may prohibit using the complete permutational configurations. Thus one should take the MonteCarlo approach for the resampling phase. Then the test would produce an asymptotic result. In the next section, we compare the efficiency among the reviewed combining functions through a simulation study. 3. Some simulation results and concluding remarks We compare the performance of the tests by obtaining empirical powers through a simulation study. For this we consider the normal, Cauchy, exponential, uniform and double exponential distributions for the three kinds of combining functions. In view of the hypothesis (1.3), we consider values of the pair varying from (0, 1) to (1, 2) with the increment 0.2 for each parameter. We note that (0, 1) is the values of under the null hypothesis. The sample sizes for this study are (10, 10), (10, 20) and (20, 10) and the nominal significance level is The simulation has been conducted with SAS/IML on the PC version and all the results in the tables are based on 1,000 simulations with the MonteCarlo method and within a simulation, we applied the permutation principle by 1,000 iterations also with the MonteCarlo approach to estimate the distribution. The simulation results are summarized in Tables 1 through 5. For the normal, Cauchy and double exponential cases, the combining function show high performance but for the exponential distribution, the Tippitt one achieves better powers. combining function yields the highest performance for the uniform distribution. The simultaneous use of several statistics in the nonparametric test procedures has been mainly developed for the purpose of enhancing the power of test. However the increase of the number of test statistics does not guarantee the increase of power(cf. Park, 2011). Therefore before analyzing the data with intensity, it would be necessary to take some preliminary or explanatory analysis to choose some reasonable statistics which can be included in a multiaspect test.
5 A study on the biaspect procedure with location and scale parameters 23 One can also try to obtain values via a theoretic method such as the asymptotic normality. For this, first of all, we note that and are not correlated. In other words, the covariance between and is 0. One can prove this easily by applying some simple permutational arguments. Also we note that the limiting distributions of and are standard normal, where and are the standardized forms of and, respectively. Since the covariance between and is 0, one can conclude that the limiting distributions of and are independent. Also since and should yield the same values as and, one can assert that and are independent in the asymptotic sense. Then with this asymptotic approach, one may obtain overall values by relatively simpler computations than the permutation principle for this and case. Finally we note that there is one more useful and famous resampling method such as the bootstrap method(cf. Efron, 1979 and Shao and Tu, 1995). The distinction between the bootstrap and permutation methods are as follows. The bootstrap method resamples with replacement but the permutation principle, without replacement from the original sample. However the difference can be significant for some cases(cf. Good, 2000). <Table 3.1> Power estimates for normal distribution
