Certain Best Tests Methods of constructing good tests simple H 0 : θ = θ 0 vs. simple H 1 : θ = θ 00 Best tests Best critical regions X 1 , ··· ,X n : random sample from f ( x ; θ ) What is the best critical region? 1 Best Critical Region C is a subset of A . Then C is called a best critical region of size α for testing H 0 : θ = θ 0 against H 1 : θ = θ 00 if, for every subset A ∈A for which Pr [( X 1 , ··· ,X n ) A ; H 0 ]= α, (a) Pr [( X 1 , ··· ,X n ) C ; H 0 ]= α, (b) Pr [( X 1 , ··· ,X n ) C ; H 1 ] Pr [( X 1 , ··· ,X n ) A ; H 1 ] 2 Test Statistics: Likelihood Ratios Test Statistic: a function (statistic) of the sample data on which the decision is to be based. Likelihood ratio statistic: L ( θ 0 ) L ( θ 00 ) If this ratio is “small”, then we reject H 0 . How “small” is small? 3 Neyman-Pearson Theorem (N-P Lemma) X 1 , ··· ,X n is a random sample from f ( x ; θ ). L
