Abstract:

The incomplete beta function arises in various statistical problems. It is known, for example, that the tail probability of the binomial distribution can be expressed as an incomplete beta function. This paper gives some results on a monotonicity property of the incomplete beta function. The given results are shown to have application in a problem of ranking and selection. Author
