|Empirical processes and tests of independence|
Empirical processes and empirical distributions loose certain information. For example the usual empirical distribution is invariant under a permutation of the data. However some information about the dependence structure can be retained either by the use of random weights or blocks. This talk will consider empirical processes and their use in tests of randomness.
