Asymptotic distribution, Power of the test, Stepwise procedure


In this study we consider all-pairwise multiple comparison for several normal mean vectors. Specifically, intended to more powerful procedure compared to the single step procedure we apply Tukey-Welsch's step down procedure to our problem. We give some simulation results regarding critical values and power of the test intended to compare procedures.
