The problem of testing for the location of a subset of the parameters entering the response function of a nonlinear regression model is considered. Two test statistics—the likelihood ratio test statistic and a test statistic derived from the asymptotic normality of the least squares estimator—for this problem are discussed and compared. The large-sample distributions of these statistics are derived and Monte Carlo power estimates are compared with power computed using the large-sample distributions.
