Operational Techniques and Tables for Making Weak MSE Tests for Restrictions in Regressions<699:OTATFM>2.0.CO;2-Z
p. 699-709

James Goodnight, T. D. Wallace

Tables of critical points for the noncentral F are presented with noncentrality equal to 1/2 of numerator degrees of freedom for denominator degrees of freedom of 1-30, 40, 60, 120, 200, 400, and 1,000, and numerator degrees of freedom of 1-30, 40, 60, 120, and 200, and type one errors of 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, and 0.50. These critical points can be used to test the second weak MSE criterion discussed in the companion paper [2]. An approximation is suggested for noncentral F(@?), and accuracy checks are given. An appendix provides a Fortran function for the approximation. The approximation is intended for using the first weak MSE test discussed in the companion paper.
