MULTIPLE COMPARISISONS OF MEAN VECTORS
Posted: Jun 21, 1996 4:53 AM

Hallo overthere,

I need a procedure to compare several mean vectors simultaneously. We have
e.g. three multivariate normal distributed random vectors with mean m1,m2,m3
and the same covariance matrix Sigma. Each random vector has 4 variables.
I want to implement a test on Mathematica.

Now we want to test simultaneously

H1: m1=m2

H2: m1=m3

H3: m2=m3

of these three random vectors and not of each variable. In univariate case it
is the Scheffe, Tukey and so on, but in multivariate case I don`t know.

Anyway, which teststatistic, I would need the teststatitic and the quantiles
or how to compute p-values for that test.

Best wishes

hope to hear from you soon

So all I want to know is which test, a
