Title: A Power Comparison of a Robust Approach to Multiple Testing

In this article, we test the performance of a robust class of multiple testing procedures. These procedures use the jump size between the potential "smallest null" p-value and the potential "largest alternative" p-value. Then, the size of the jump is compared against a critical value and is used to determine the stopping rule of the procedure. In order to control for type I error rate, we evaluate the performance of these procedures using different critical values. A power comparison using simulation suggests that these procedures have a control of many type I error rates including the false discovery rate(FDR).
