An analysis of Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics and their distributions
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=123987&ref=Feed
<p>This worksheet examines the use of Kolomogorov-Smirnov (K-S) statistics and presents MAPLE implementations of their distributions under different conditions and assumptions. The presentation aims at being representative rather than comprehensive, and so may serve as an introduction to the properties and use of K-S statistics. The worksheet draws on existing work listed in the References section, and it implements transcriptions (by the author of this worksheet) of certain algorithms given in a subset of those references. </p><img src="/view.aspx?si=123987/417499\KSstat.JPG" alt="An analysis of Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics and their distributions" align="left"/><p>This worksheet examines the use of Kolomogorov-Smirnov (K-S) statistics and presents MAPLE implementations of their distributions under different conditions and assumptions.

<p>The problem addressed by this worksheet is: Given two samples of data, which may contain ties, how may one test the hypothesis that they are drawn from the same distribution?</p>
<p>The worksheet demonstrates the use of a MAPLE implementation of an algorithm to perform two-sample homogeneity tests, based on any one of three Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) test statistics.</p>
<p>The MAPLE package KSNstat, which is introduced in this worksheet, contains the MAPLE procedure gsmirn which implements the GSMIRN algorithm given in 1994 by Nikiforov [1] to calculate exact p-values for generalised (conditionally distribution-free) two-sample homogeneity tests based on two-sided and one-sided Kolomogorov-Smirnov statistics. Notably, the Nikiforov algorithm covers the range from discrete to continuous distributions; specifically, it handles tied data points.</p>
