Abstract : There has been much recent interest in multivariate, nonparametric procedures with major emphasis on their asymptotic properties. The multivariate, two-sample problem is considered in this paper with particular interest in small-sample applications. The construction of useful tables seems precluded because of inherent correlations between variates and hence approximate test procedures are developed that are based on exact, small-sample moments. The tests considered are the multivariate randomization test, the multivariate rank test, and the multivariate normal scores test. Examples are given. (Author)
