Goodness of fit describes the validity of models involving statistical distributions of data, and smooth tests are a subset of these tests that are easy to apply and can be used in any situation in which there are relatively large sample sizes. Both concepts have become increasingly importantwith the advent of high-speed computers and the implementation of more complex models in the areas of probability and statistics. Written to be accessible to undergraduates with a knowledge of statistics and calculus, this is an introductory reference work that should appeal to all professionalsinvolved in statistical modeling.
