Abstract:

This paper is an extension of Watsons paper AD-252 698. The fundamental idea pursued is to maximize the expected number of correct decisions by a proper choice of the critical regions in a two-stage design and compare the value with that obtained by maximizing the same in a single-stage design. The basis for this comparison has been laid in Sections 4, 5 and 6. In Section 7, the behavior of some allied functions has been discussed at length. In Section 8, sufficient conditions have been worked out under which a two-stage design will do better than a corresponding single-stage design and vice-versa. Approximate bounds for the expected number of correct decisions in a two-stage design are given in Section 9. Author
