Abstract:

Let Pi sub 1,...,Pi sub k be k independent normal populations with means mu sub 1,...,mu sub k and variances sigma sub 1, sup 2,...,sigma sub k, sup 2, respectively. The authors interest is to select a non-empty subset of the k populations containing the best when the populations are ranked in terms of i the means mu sub i, when sigma sub i sup 2 sigma sup 2, known or unknown, and ii the variance sigma sub i sup 2, when the mu sub i are known or unknown. Procedures and results are derived for the case when sample sizes are unequal. The authors also discuss gamma populations with scale parameter, and selection for normal means that are better than control. Author
