Title: Type I Error Control by Step-Up-Down Multiple Testing Procedures
Author(s): Alexander Gordon*+

Address: 9201 University City Blvd, Charlotte, NC, 28223, United States
Keywords: Multiple testing procedure ; Step-up-down procedure ; Generalized familywise error rate

We present formulas for the exact levels at which a given step-up-down procedure controls the generalized familywise error rates, the data being drawn from a general and unknown distribution. Both weak and strong control cases are considered. These results close the gap between the corresponding existing results for the classes of step-down and step-up procedures.
