Cramervon Mises statistics: to standardize or not?
From the paper: The Exact and Asymptotic Distribution of Cramer von Mises Statistics Authors: S. Gsorgo, J. J. Faraday (Michigan, USA, 1994)
I wonder if the authors had considered standardizing the samples before to evaluate the test statistics:
____T= 1/(12*n) * Sum [(2*k1)/(2*n)  Phi(k)]^2
for normal sample, n size, Phi( ) the inverse Normal, the sum performed for the ordered sample as usual.
My evaluations, without standardizations were:
____n= 10, quantile 0.50, Table= 0.12068 ____My observed frequencies: ____10´000 samples 0.509; 40´000, 0.501.
____n= 50, quantile 0.95, Table= 0.45986 ____ ____10´000 samples 0.9499; 40´000, 0.9502.
It is clear that standardization (subtract the sample mean then divide by the standard deviation) weren?t performed.
