A likelihoodratio test of monophyly
 Syst. Biol
, 1996
"... Abstract.—Many phylogenetic analyses are inspired by or depend upon the monophyly of a group specified a priori. Also, many evolutionary problems for which phytogenies are useful do not require every detail of the phylogeny to be estimated correctly but depend upon the monophyly (or lack thereof) of ..."

) of a particular group. We propose a likelihoodratio test that compares whether the best trees estimated with and without the constraint of monophyly are significantly different. Simulation suggests that the test is conservative when the null hypothesis (a particular specified constraint) is correct
On likelihood ratio tests
 IMS Lecture Notesmonograph Series 49
, 2006
"... Abstract: Likelihood ratio tests are intuitively appealing. Nevertheless, a number of examples are known in which they perform very poorly. The present paper discusses a large class of situations in which this is the case, and analyzes just how intuition misleads us; it also presents an alternative ..."

Likelihood ratio tests and singularities
 Ann. Statist
, 2008
"... Many statistical hypotheses can be formulated in terms of polynomial equalities and inequalities in the unknown parameters and thus correspond to semialgebraic subsets of the parameter space. We consider large sample asymptotics for the likelihood ratio test of such hypotheses in models that satisf ..."

Bahadur efficiency of the likelihood ratio test ∗
, 2005
"... We present a new approach to study the Bahadur efficiency of likelihood tests. Our approach is based on the large deviation principle for empirical processes. We prove that the likelihood ratio test is Bahadur asymptotically optimal under mild sufficient conditions. Our results apply to common famil ..."

Likelihood ratio tests for monotone functions
 ANN. STATIST
, 2001
"... We study the problem of testing for equality at a fixed point in the setting of nonparametric estimation of a monotone function. The likelihood ratio test for this hypothesis is derived in the particular case of interval censoring (or current status data) and its limiting distribution is obtained. T ..."

Likelihoodratio tests for hidden Markov models

On the likelihoodratio test applied in asteroseismology for mode identification

The dates of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Key words methods: data analysis – stars: oscillations The identification of the solarlike oscillation modes, as measured by asteroseismology, is a necessary requirement in order to infer the physical properties of the interior of the sta ..."

In those cases, it is of common use to apply a likelihoodratio test to discriminate between the possible scenarios. We present here a statistical analysis of the likelihoodratio test
