Many robust tests have been proposed in the literature to compare two hazard rate functions, however, very few of them can be used in cases when there are multiple hazard rate functions to be compared. In this paper, we propose an approach for detecting the difference among multiple hazard rate functions. Through a simulation study and a real-data application, we show that the new method is robust and powerful in many situations, compared with some commonly used tests.

This is joint work with Professor Hanwen Huang of University of Georgia and Professor Peihua Qiu of University of Florida.
