Abstract: In this talk, we will provide a comprehensive overview of theoretical and applied approaches to a variety of problems in which precedence-type test procedures can be used. Then, some recent advances on precedencetype tests, including the extension to progressively censored data, a two-stage test for stochastic ordering in two samples, and a sequential procedure for two-sample problem will be discussed. Collaborators: N. Balakrishnan (McMaster University, Canada), N. Kannan (National Science Foundation), M. L. Tang (Hang Seng Management College, Hong Kong), R. C. Tripathi (University of Texas at San Antonio), X. Zhu (McMaster University, Canada)
