Signed rank based empirical likelihood for the symmetric location model

Xiaojie Du and Anton Schick

Statistics & Probability Letters, 2018, vol. 137, issue C, 40-45

Abstract: An empirical likelihood approach with an increasing number of bounded signed rank based constraints is derived for inference about the center of symmetry in the symmetric location model. A Wilks type theorem is derived where the number of constraints is allowed to grow at the rate o(n2∕5). This rate is faster than the rate o(n1∕3) obtained in Hjort et al. (2009) and Peng and Schick (2013) for bounded constraints.
