Figure 8

Simulated LRT at H 0 : (β, σ, τ) = (0,0,τ 0 ) with fitted γ and χ 2 : stomach. At a given probability value, the red dot shows the corresponding quantile of the simulated values (N = 1000) of LRT = for the stomach with the null hypothesis H0: (β000) = (0,0, arbitrary). For this H0, = LRT2p-con. The black line shows quantiles of the fitted gamma distribution γ, with shape s and rate r. The blue line shows quantiles of the χ2 (3 d.f.) distribution. The horizontal lines marked 8.960 and 7.815 show the 0.95 quantiles of γ and χ2 (3 d.f.).
