Abstract:

The problem of choosing the largest of n means is considered as a multiple decision problem which is generated from n component two-decision problems. With additive losses Bayes rules for the component problems yield Bayes rules for the multiple decision problem. Some properties of these Bayes rules are found. Also a co servativenear-Bayes rule is presented with tabled values for any number of means. Author
