Section 8.1 Chi-square Goodness-Of-Fit Tests I Chi-square statistic (Karl Pearson (1900)): to test the appropriateness of different probabilistic models (as a competitor of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test). I Y 1 follows b ( n , p 1 ) with 0 < p 1 < 1. Z = Y 1 - np 1 p np 1 (1 - p 1 ) is approximately N (0 , 1) for large n . And hence Q 1 = Z 2 is approximately χ 2 (1). I Let Y 2 = n - Y 1 and p 2 = 1 - p 1 , Q 1 = ( Y 1 - np 1 ) 2 np 1 (1 - p 1 ) = ( Y 1 - np 1 ) 2 np 1 + ( Y 1 - np 1 ) 2 n (1 - p 1 ) . ( Y 1 - np 1 ) 2 = ( n - Y 1 - n [1 - p 1 ]) 2 = ( Y 2 - np 2 ) 2 , Q 1 = ( Y 1 - np 1 ) 2 np 1 + ( Y 2 - np 2 ) 2 np 2 . I Q 1 measures the “closeness” of the observed numbers to the corresponding expected numbers.

Section 8.1 Chi-square Goodness-Of-Fit Tests I An experiment have k mutually exclusive and exhaustive outcomes, say, A 1 , A 2 , ··· , A k . Let p i = P ( A i ) and thus k i =1 p i = 1. The experiment is repeated n independent times, Y i represent the number of times the experiment results in A i , i = 1 , 2 , ··· , k . I Joint p.d.f. of Y 1 , Y 2 , ··· , Y k - 1 : f ( y 1 , y 2 , ··· , y k - 1 ) = n ! y 1 ! y 2 ! ··· y k ! p y 1 1 p y 2 2 ··· p y k k . where
