Abstract : Simplified tests are consturcted to replace the most powerful rank test (MPRT) and the locally most powerful rank test (LMPRT) of the hypothesis (H sub 0) : G = F against Lehmann alternatives. Some of these are shown to be locally asymptotically efficient. One is efficient for non-local alternatives when the ratio of sample sizes m/n approaches infinity as n approaches infinity. (Author)
