Abstract. Takemura (1985, Multivariate Analysis VI, ed. P. R. Krishnaiah, 583-597, Elsevier, Amsterdam) presented a decomposition of Hotelling's T2-statistic into analogues of univariate Student-t variates along the principal component axes of the (pooled) sample covariance matrix. In this paper the idea is extended to the heteroscedastic situation where an analogous decomposition of the Behrens-Fisher statistic is considered when the nature of the heteroscedasticity between the two samples can be described by a common principal component (CPC) model, or more particularly a q-dimensional CPC subspace model.
Key words and phrases: Covariance matrices, heteroscedasticity, iterative procedure, model fitting, randomization testing, Takemura decomposition.
