Unformatted text preview: MAT2378 Rafal Kulik Version 2009/Oct/30 Rafal Kulik MAT2378 Probability and Statistics for the Natural Sciences Hypothesis PART 2 Comments These notes form an introduction to hypotheses testing. They do not correspond to any section in the textbook . Im planning to spend one lecture on this material. Rafal Kulik 1 MAT2378 Probability and Statistics for the Natural Sciences Hypothesis PART 2 The ttest We are going to test H : = , where is a constant. Step 1: H : = In the second step we choose an alternative H A : Step 2: Choose H A as one of 1. H A : < (onesided test) 2. H A : > (onesided test) 3. H A : 6 = (twosided test) Rafal Kulik 2 MAT2378 Probability and Statistics for the Natural Sciences Hypothesis PART 2 Step 3: The test statistics T = Y S/ n . This statistics has t n 1 under H . Step 4: Compute the observed value t = y s/ n of your test statistics. Step 5: Compute the pvalue: P (  T  >  t  ) for the twosided test; P ( T > t ) or P ( T < t ) for the appropriate onesided test. Step 6: Choose  probability of type I error: = P (reject H  H is true) . Typically = 0 . 01 , . 05 . If pvalue is smaller than  reject H . Rafal Kulik 3 MAT2378 Probability and Statistics for the Natural Sciences Hypothesis PART 2 The form of hypotheses will depend on what we try to show or to conclude. As alternative, we choose what we try to demonstrate by data....
