Abstract
Asymptotic relative efficiency (ARE) and asymptotic loss are two ways to compare the performance of one detector to another and in particular to the optimum detector. Various authors have suggested and studied a variety of nonparametric detection schemes applicable in the analysis of spectral data. Here the ARE's of the modified Savage detector and Sc set of detectors are derived. It is shown that in most cases of practical interest the ARE of the modified Savage detector is higher than that of the Mann-Whitney detector. The asymptotic loss of the modified Savage detector with respect to the optimum detector in these cases is less than 1 dB.
