A new preprint joint with Herold Dehling, Roland Fried and Isabel García about „Change-Point Detection under Dependence Based on Two-Sample U-Statistics“ is online at arXiv.
Abstract: We study the detection of change-points in time series. The classical CUSUM statistic for detection of jumps in the mean is known to be sensitive to outliers. We thus propose a robust test based on the Wilcoxon two-sample test statistic. The asymptotic distribution of this test can be derived from a functional central limit theorem for two-sample U-statistics. We extend a theorem of Csorgo and Horvath to the case of dependent data.
