Examples for 12/07/2009 Fall 2009 1. Consider a family of probability distributions with a p.d.f. of the form f ( x ; θ ) = θ x θ – 1 , 0 < x < 1, zero elsewhere, θ 1. To test the simple hypothesis H 0 : θ = 1 against the alternative simple hypothesis H 1 : θ = θ 1 , where θ 1 > 1, we will use a random sample X 1 , X 2 of size n = 2. Intuition : n = 1 f 0 ( x ) = < < o.w. 0 1 0 1 x f 1 ( x ) = < < o.w. 0 1 0 2 x x H 0 : X has p.d.f. f 0 ( x ) vs. H 1 : X has p.d.f. f 1 ( x ) . θ = 1 θ = 2 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 x x x x 1 0 2 1 ; ; H L H L λ = = .

Then Power = 1 – c 2 = 2 α α 2 . a) Use the likelihood ratio to show that the best ( most powerful ) rejection region is given by { ( x 1 , x 2 ) : x 1 x 2 c }.
