thesis / dissertation description
A new statistic is proposed which will be useful as a test for normality. The statistic is easy to calculate from a random sample of any size without a need to know or estimate the population parameters and exhibits a double sided characteristic, making it capable of discriminating between bimodal and skewed types of non-normality.
