Abstract : The asymptotic relative efficiency of Mood's test against the likelihood ratio test for the change in location of exponential distribution, is derived. Further, this is carried out for all three alternatives for Massey' test. The asymptotic powers are compared with the exact powers to find out how large a sample size is needed before one could use the expressions for the asymptotic power. (Author)
