Evaluation of the Goldfeld-Quandt test and alternatives
In this study, the widely used Coldfeld-C^uandt test for lieterosk('da.sticity in the linear regression model is evaluated.

The problem of analytically non-tractable distribution function in the case of the Likelihood Ratio test is overcome by employing Monte Carlo methods. It is observed that the Likelihood Ratio test is better in most of the cases than the Goldfeld-Quandt test.
