An L1-variant of the Cramer-von Mises test


  • Schmid, Friedrich
  • Trede, Mark


An L1-variant of the Cramer-von Mises test statistic for the one sample test of fit problem is presented. Quantiles of the sampling distribution under the null hypothesis are derived by Monte-Carlo Simulation. The power of the new test is compared to those of other, conventional one sample tests, such as the Cramer-von Mises test, the Anderson-Darling test, and the Kolmogorov test.
