A U-statistics Based Approach to Mean Testing for High Dimensional Multivariate Data Under Non-normality
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
A test statistic is considered for testing a hypothesis for the mean vector for multivariate data, when the dimension of the vector, p, may exceed the number of vectors, n, and the underlying distribution need not necessarily be normal. With n, p large, and under mild assumptions, the statistic is shown to asymptotically follow a normal distribution. A by product of the paper is the approximate distribution of a quadratic form, based on the reformulation of well-known Box's approximation, under high-dimensional set up.
