title: | Application of data compression methods to hypothesis testing for ergodic and stationary processes |

keywords: | hypothesis testing, data compression, universal coding, Information Theory, universal predictors, Shannon entropy. |

abstract: | We show that data compression methods (or universal codes) can be applied for hypotheses testing in a framework of classical mathematical statistics. Namely, we describe tests, which are based on data compression methods, for the three following problems: i) identity testing, ii) testing for independence and iii) testing of serial independence for time series. Applying our method of identity testing to pseudorandom number generators, we obtained experimental results which show that the suggested tests are quite efficient. |

If your browser does not display the abstract correctly (because of the different mathematical symbols) you may look it up in the PostScript or PDF files. | |

The first *source* gives you
the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the
third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the
installation of your web browser, at least one of these should
(after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows
the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact
your system administrator to install your browser
correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
