This paper is concerned with the gap test for random sequences, first proposed by Kendall and Babington-Smith [7], and with various extensions to this test. One of these extensions is the test proposed by Meyer, Gephart and Rasmussen [8], another is, asymptotically, a partitioning of the $\chi^2$ statistic of Kendall and Babington-Smith [7], and others are likelihood ratio tests based on Markov chain models.
