Goodness-of-fit tests for parametric regression models based on empirical characteristic functions. (English) Zbl 1186.62029
Summary: Test procedures are constructed for testing the goodness-of-fit in parametric regression models. The test statistic is in the form of an \(L^2\) distance between the empirical characteristic function of the residuals in a parametric regression fit and the corresponding empirical characteristic function of the residuals in a nonparametric regression fit. The asymptotic null distribution as well as the behavior of the test statistic under contiguous alternatives is investigated. Theoretical results are accompanied by a simulation study.
