Abstract (Summary of the Work)

This thesis eives the distri bution theory of four clae aifioation statistics. Sone parta of it were published a few years ago. The relevant publicationa are listed nt the end.What the author knows of related work by other authors is set out in the Introductions little material of this nature is given elsewhere in the theats. If a result is not explicitly credited to another author, it may be taken to nean that the author believes it to be hia worik.It will be noticed that three (U, R and 2) of the four statistics receive less a pace than the remaining one (W). One reason for this is that the nethods required in the treatment of U, R and 2 are nore or less sinilar to those employed in the case of w. nother is that the va rioun statistics are equivalent under certain conditions.Simplifying aituations receive special attention. Cenerally, they also corres pond to contitions explicitly excluded whi le deriving the general resulta.
