Abstract
In this paper, we introduce a new approximation for the null distribution of the likelihood ratio test for the general case. We compare the the critical values obtained by the new approximation to the values which are obtained by the exact distribution for the cases k=1, 2 to test the accuracy of the new approximation. Also, we compare the results to another approximation method (which is known by Barnett and Lewis (1994)) for the cases k=3,4.
