A test for the equality of marginal distributions
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 344 (2007) no. 8, pp. 509-514.

We present a test for the equality of marginals of bi-dimensional distribution functions under censoring. The asymptotic power of the test under approaching alternatives and the simulation analysis for finite samples are done. The test is more powerful than classical tests in situations where the marginals differ in shape parameters.

On propose un test pour l'égalité des répartitions des marginales pour des données complètes ou censurées à droite. On obtient une estimation de la puissance asymptotique pour des alternatives approchées. On étudie par simulation des propriétés du test pour des échantillons finis. Le test est plus puissant que les tests classiques quand les marginales diffèrent en paramètre de forme.
