 Abstract
We consider the problem of testing the existence of change in mean and estimating the change-point when the data are from the normal distribution. A change-point estimator using the likelihood ratio test statistic, Gombay and Horvath (1990) test statistic, and nonparametric change-point estimator using Carlstein (1988) empirical distribution are studied when there exists one change-point in the mean. A power study is done to compare the change test statistics. And a comparison study of change-point estimators for estimation capability is done via simulations with S-plus software.
