Abstract:

In this paper a new subset selection rule for selecting a subset containing the least probable multinomial cell is defined. The rule is shown to be minimax and admissible in the class of rules which have a preassigned probability of at least P of selecting the least probable cell provided that P is sufficiently large. The loss used is the number of non-best cells selected. Author
