Abstract

A general class of dissimilarity measures among k greater than or equal to 2 distributions and their sample estimators are considered, for mixed continuous and categorical variables. The distributional properties are studied for the location model and the asymptotic distributions are investigated, in the general parametric case. The asymptotic distributions of the resulting statistics are used in various settings, to test statistical hypotheses.
