A summary is made on the testing of a hypothesis in statistical decision theory. The basic problem considered is that there are two possible states of nature, symbolized by a parameter theta which can assume only the values 0 and 1. The value of theta is un nown, but an observable random variable x with values in some space E has a probability distribution P sub theta which depends on theta in a known way.
