The Exact Asymptotic Distribution Function of Watson's UN-Squared for Testing Goodness-of-Fit With Circular Discrete Data
We show that the full asymptotic distribution for Watson’s statistic, modified for discrete data, can be computed by standard methods. Previous approximate percentiles for the uniform multinomial case are found to be accurate. More extensive percentiles are presented for this distribution, and for the distribution associated with “Benford’s Law”.
