Abstract:

Statistics which predict the behavior of a binomial sequential test moments and distribution of sample size and error probabilities are tabulated for a variety of parameter combinations. Some of these statistics are plotted. Graphs and simple estimation methods are given so that a suitable sequential test may be quickly constructed. Binomial quantization of a continuous variable for a probability ratio test is considered here the emphasis is on detection of signals in noise. The quantization levels which minimize sample size have been determined for several common underlying distributions. The behavior of functions which statistically describe test performance is discussed in relation to interpolation. Author
