%X In this paper, we characterize symmetric distributions based on Renyi entropy of order statistics in subsamples. A test of symmetry is proposed based on the estimated Renyi entropy. Critical values of the test are computed by Monte Carlo simulation. Also we compute the power of the test under different alternatives and show that it behaves better that the test of Habibi and Arghami (1386).
