Weighted (h,?)-divergences in goodness-of-fit with composite null hypotheses
Purpose ? Proposes a test of goodness-of-fit with composite null hypotheses and weights in the classes based on weighted (h,?)-divergences. Design/methodology/approach ? The weighted (h,?)-divergence
between an empirical distribution and the probability of the estimated model is here investigated for large simple random samples. Findings ? The unknown parameters of the model are estimated using minimum (h,?)-divergences estimators with weights
as studied in previous works by the authors. Originality/value ? Research makes an important contribution to (h,?)-divergences and their applications in statistical and other areas.
