Abstract : Nonparametric tests were adapted and used to determine if a given set of samples from a time series is stationary, tau-dependent and Markov. Results obtained from analyzing (testing) a number sequence generated by a random number generator and sets of wind speed and direction data collected at White Sands Missile Range are presented.
