Multivariate tests of association based on univariate tests

NeurIPS 2016 Ruth HellerYair Heller

For testing two vector random variables for independence, we propose testing whether the distance of one vector from an arbitrary center point is independent from the distance of the other vector from another arbitrary center point by a univariate test. We prove that under minimal assumptions, it is enough to have a consistent univariate independence test on the distances, to guarantee that the power to detect dependence between the random vectors increases to one with sample size...
