Directional differentiability for supremum-type functionals: statistical applications

by   Javier Cárcamo, et al.
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

We show that various functionals related to the supremum of a real function defined on an arbitrary set or a measure space are Hadamard directionally differentiable. We specifically consider the supremum norm, the supremum, the infimum, and the amplitude of a function. The (usually non-linear) derivatives of these maps adopt simple expressions under suitable assumptions on the underlying space. As an application, we improve and extend to the multidimensional case the results in Raghavachari regarding the limiting distributions of Kolmogorov-Smirnov type statistics under the alternative hypothesis. Similar results are obtained for analogous statistics associated with copulas. We additionally solve an open problem about the Berk-Jones statistic proposed by Jager-Wellner-2004. Finally, the asymptotic distribution of maximum mean discrepancies over Donsker classes of functions is derived.
