We investigate the number of samples required for testing the monotonicity of a distribution with respect to an arbitrary underlying partially ordered set. Our first result is a nearly linear lower bound for the sample complexity of testing monotonicity with respect to the poset consisting of a directed perfect matching. ... more >>>

We propose a framework for studying property testing of collections of distributions,

where the number of distributions in the collection is a parameter of the problem.

Previous work on property testing of distributions considered

single distributions or pairs of distributions. We suggest two models that differ

in the way the ...

We consider the problem of testing a basic property of collections of distributions: having similar means. Namely, the algorithm should accept collections of distributions in which all distributions have means that do not differ by more than some given parameter, and should reject collections that are relatively far from having ... more >>>
