Probability distributions of the Kolmogorov and omega-square statistics for continuous distributions with shift and scale parameters

  • K. O. Dzhaparidze
  • M. S. Nikulin


The paper is devoted to the application of the statistical Kolmogorov and omega-square criteria to verification of a complex hypothesis H0 according to which the independent, identically and continuously distributed random variables X1,...,Xn have the law G[(x−θ1)/θ2].
