An Unbinned GoodnessofFit Test Based on the Random Walk
Abstract
We describe a test statistic for unbinned goodnessoffit of data in one dimension. The statistic is based on the twodimensional Random Walk. The rejection power of this test is explored both for simple and compound hypotheses and, for the examples explored, it is found to be comparable to that for the chisquare test. We discuss briefly how it may be possible to extend this test to multidimensional data.
