Alternative. Our objective is to come up with a decision rule D, such that when we average out over all possible sets of observations, we minimize the associated risk or expected loss, R(θ, D) = EL(θ, D(X)). In the ﬁrst of the preceding examples, we might have L(θ, d) = 1 if θ ∈ K and d = H (Type II error), L(θ, d) = 10 if θ ∈ H and d = K (Type I error), L(θ, d) = 0 otherwise. Typically, losses L depend on some function of the diﬀerence between the true (but unknown) value θ and our best guess θ∗ of this value, the absolute 26 2 Optimal Procedures deviation L(θ, θ∗ ) = |θ∗ − θ|, for example.

Such impartial tests are said to be invariant with respect to the transformations involved (the conversion of units or the permutation of subscripts). 7 Most Stringent Tests Let βϕ (θ) denote the power of a test ϕ against the alternative θ. Let the envelope power function β∗α (θ) be the supremum of βϕ (θ) over all level-α tests of the hypothesis. Then βα∗ (θ) − βϕ (θ) is the amount by which a speciﬁc test ϕ falls short of the maximum power attainable. A test that minimizes its maximum shortcoming over all alternatives θ is said to be most stringent.

B) Using the same set of axis, sketch the power curve of a test based on a much larger sample. c) Suppose that without looking at the data you i) always reject; ii) always accept; iii) use a chance device so as to reject with probability α. For each of these three tests, determine the power and the signiﬁcance level. Are any of these three tests exact? unbiased? 2. Suppose that we are testing a simple hypothesis H against a simple alternative K. a) Show that if α1 ≤ α2 then β1 ≤ β2 . b) Show that if the test ϕ1 [α1 ] is less powerful than ϕ2 [α2 ] where the signiﬁcance level α1 < α2 , it may be that ϕ1 [α2 ] > ϕ2 [α2 ].
