Are the Sweden Democrats really Sweden’s largest party? : A maximum likelihood ratio test on the simplex

Bergman, Jakob LU and Holmquist, Björn LU (2017) In Statistics and Probability Letters 124. p.64-68
Abstract
We introduce a maximum likelihood ratio test to test if a specific proportion is the greatest in a multinomial situation with a single measurement. The test is based on partitioning the parameter space and utilising logratio transformations.
