Finite-memory statistical problems typically deal with the situation where the class of statistics is restricted to those taking on a fixed finite number of values. Although a potentially infinite number of samples may be available the statistician is allowed to base his inference only on the current value of such a statistic - the current state of his finite memory. This is the case for instance when the inference is to be performed by a small size computer. During the past several years a number of results have been obtained concerning a two-hypotheses finite-memory problem. In this report the author considers some aspects of the case where the number of hypotheses is greater than two.
