Abstract:

The asymptotic properties of a general class of nonparametric sequential ranking and selection procedures which possess an elimination feature is studied. If the correct selection probability is to be at least 1-alpha and the length of the indifference zone is delta, different results are obtained as alpha approaches zero depending on whether one assumes delta fixed or delta approaches zero. A Monte-Carlo study confirms the superiority of elimination procedures.
