Abstract: This paper develops a test for homogeneity in finite mixture models where the mixing proportions are known a priori (taken to be 0.5) and a common nuisance parameter is present.
Projected likelihood contrasts for testing homogeneity in finite mixture models with nuisance parameters
For power investigation of the proposed method a reparametrized minimax set-up is introduced, reducing the composite hypothesis ”p = q” to a simple one with the multivariate mixed density (m/n)p + (1 − m/n)q as infinite dimensional nuisance parameter.
Optimal Calibration for Multiple Testing against Local Inhomogeneity in Higher Dimension
It is based on a reparametrization of (p, q) to a couple (φ, h), reducing the composite hypothesis ”p = q” to the simple one ”φ ≡ 0” with the multivariate mixed density h as infinite dimensional nuisance parameter.
