### Abstract

The problem of testing for the location of a subset of the parameters entering
the response function of a nonlinear regression model is considered. Two test
statistics--the likelihood ratio test statistic and a test statistic derived
from the asymptotic normality of the least squares estimator--for this problem
are discussed and compared. The large-sample distributions of these statistics
are derived and Monte Carlo power estimates are compared with power computed
using the large-sample distributions.
