Abstract

The purpose of the study is to suggest test statistics for discriminating between linear failure rate distribution (LFRD) and Rayleigh distribution while considering these distributions as null and alternative populations respectively. To test statistics based on moments of order statistics and population quantiles are proposed and their percentiles are evaluated. The performance of the test procedures are also compared through computed power functions.
