Model Adequacy Checks for Discrete Choice Dynamic Models
The continuous version of the pro jection, often called Khmaladze (1981) transformation, was employed in the tests of Koul and Stute (1999) to specify the conditional mean, and of Bai and Ng (2001), Bai (2003), Delgado and Stute (2008) to specify the conditional distribution.
Model Adequacy Checks for Discrete Choice Dynamic Models
The first term in k(r) controls for the lack of uniformity of Ut (and it is similar to Bai’s (2003) k(r)), it is zero when Ut are uniform.

Model Adequacy Checks for Discrete Choice Dynamic Models
Recently, Bai, et al proposed a corrected LRT when c < 1, and Jiang, et al extended it to the case when p < n and c = 1.
Optimal hypothesis testing for high dimensional covariance matrices
Moreover, we show that the asymptotic power of ψ on Θn uniformly dominates that of the corrected LRT by Bai, et al and Jiang, et al over the entire asymptotic regime under which the corrected LRT is defined, i.e., p < n and p/n → c ∈ (0, 1].
Optimal hypothesis testing for high dimensional covariance matrices
In the high-dimensional setting where both n and p are large and p < n, Bai, et al showed that the LRT is not well behaved as the chi-squared limiting distribution under H0 no longer holds.
Optimal hypothesis testing for high dimensional covariance matrices
For testing (1), when p < n and p/n → c ∈ (0, 1), Bai, et al proposed a corrected likelihood ratio test (CLRT) with the test statistic C LRn given in (2).
