Özet

In this study, we propose a new test based on a computational approach to test the equality of several log-normal means. We compare this test with some existing methods in terms of the type-I error rate and power using Monte Carlo simulations for varying values of number of groups and sample sizes. The simulation results indicate that the proposed test could be suggested as a good alternative for testing the equality of several log-normal means.
