In my talk, I will present recent results on the asymptotic distribution of some robust and non-parametric test statistics for the detection of change-points in time series. This leads to the study of two-sample U-processes, empirical U-processes, and two-sample U-quantiles.We will present limit theorems for these processes, both in the case of short range as well as long range dependent data.
