Abstract

The problem of testing whether one regression function is larger than another on a specified set R is considered, The regression functions must be linear functions of the parameters but need not be linear functions of the independent variables, The proposed test has an exactly specified size in typical situations. The test's critical value is a standard t percentile. The power function of the test is investigated.
