Asymptotic hypotheses testing for the colour blind problem
Within a nonparametric framework, we consider the problem of testing the equality of marginal distributions for a sequence of independent and identically distributed bivariate data, with unobservable order in each pair. In this case, it is not possible to construct the corresponding empirical distributions functions and yet this article shows that a systematic approach to hypothesis testing is possible and provides an empirical process on which inference can be based. Furthermore, we identify the linear statistics that are asymptotically optimal for testing the hypothesis of equal marginal distributions against contiguous alternatives. Finally, we exhibit an interesting property of the proposed stochastic process: local alternatives of dependence can also be detected.
