Section 13.1 deals with run tests. The Wald–Wolfowitz runs test, also known as the single-sample runs test, and the runs up and down test are the most common ones. For the definition of a run please refer to the Glossary (Appendix C). Section 13.2 covers successive difference tests (tests based on the difference of consecutive observations).
