Bivariate simplicial tests for randomness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper introduces a simplex-based extension of the concept of runs to the bivariate setup which allows to test for randomness under the null hypothesis of angularly symmetric distributions. The statistic's null limiting distribution is derived and Monte Carlo studies evaluate the test performances.
