Abstract : Rates of convergence to zero of probabilities of excessive deviations of two-sample simple linear rank statistics are computed under the null hypothesis and conditions on the third moments of the scores. The authors consider a broad range of deviations smaller than large deviations, including moderate deviations, which have applications in Bayes Risk Efficiency considerations. (Author)
