One-tailed $F$-test with multiple restrictions

I have a regression, say $Y=a+bX_1+cX_2+e$.

I know how to do the standard $F$-test for $b=c=0$. However, in my case, both coefficients $b$ and $c$ should be positive. So is there a way to test if $b>0$ AND $c>0$? This would be a one-tailed $F$-test with two restrictions.

• The first thing you mention is a null; presumably you mean against an alternative of at least one not being 0. Is the second thing mean to be an alternative hypothesis rather than a null? – Glen_b Nov 3 '15 at 9:14
• I want to test the null $b>0$ AND $c>0$ – user93929 Nov 3 '15 at 12:19
• A composite null that doesn't include its boundary? I don't think that's going to work even for one variable. – Glen_b Nov 3 '15 at 12:28
• Interesting question. I encountered multiple one-sided restrictions before in an econometrics class, and if I remember correctly it was generally impossible to test for. – Richard Hardy Nov 3 '15 at 16:03
