Discriminating Among Several Semiparametric Models

M. M. E. Abd El-Monsef, M. M. Seyam


To distinguish between two or more than two models one can use the T-optimality criterion. Another criterion using for discrimination between two or more than two models is KL-criterion, which depend on the Kullback-Leibler distance. KL-criterion can be used to discriminate between two non-normal models and a generalized of the KL-criterion was studied to discriminate more than two non-normal models. In this paper, more than two semiparametric models can be distinguished using generalized KL-criterion. An application was applied to illustrate the proposed technique by using three proportional hazard models via real data.
